Star Volunteers:

Darshit Jaju

Persuing MBA from IIMA, IIT-Roorkee Engg Graduate
Jaju Darshit Hariprasad worked as a volunteer/student-mentor at "School of Excellence" both centres of Molahera and Jharsa during the session 2013-14. He is IIT-Roorkee Graduate and very keen to participate in any educational activity that enhances key skill areas of students. He pioneered the Student Development Program and worked and developed some programmes for personality development with the Praneet Sushil, Chief functionary of Prayatna.
 
The details of his work are as under:
 
He was involved in teaching Geography and Mathematics to students from 4th to 8th Std. These were generally remedial classes for students studying in Govt Schools in nearby villages.
He also actively contributed in conducting auditions and training students for different music performances like Group Song, Solo song and Instrumental performance for Annual Day function of Prayatna School of Excellence. 
He regularly conducted General Awareness quizzes, speeches and debates on contemporary socio-political issues for students of PRAYATNA. 
He conducted awareness sessions to encourage people in nearby villages to vote for General Elections-2014.
He was involved in periodic assessment of students from 2nd Std. to 8th Std. of PRAYATNA. The purpose of this assignment was to get the feedback of students in general and to assess if a student from a particular class/Std. is actually comfortable with the Mathematical and Reading skills (English & Hindi) as prescribed by the academic curriculum of his Class/Std. In this, Darshit conducted comprehensive test series in Maths and personal interviews of each student to assess and assign the actual learning level of students in 3 different competencies: English Reading, Hindi Reading and Maths/Arithmetic. For example, if a student of 7th Std. was not found comfortable in reading 7th Std English text of his Medium & Board, she was assessed with English text of 6th Std.
 
If the student was found comfortable, she was assigned Learning Level-6 in English Reading. If not, she would be tested with 5th Std English text and so on. Similar assessment was made for Hindi Reading. For Maths/Arithmetic, if a student scored  an average score >80% in the Maths test series for his actual Std./Class, he would be assigned that learning level or else he would be tested again for the lower Class/Std and then would be assigned with the learning level he would be found comfortable in. In this way, for each student, appropriate learning levels in 3 different competencies were assigned.
 
Thereafter, the data collected for students was analysed to get trends in learning levels of students in various competencies as a function of age, gender, medium of instruction, board of education, type of Schools (Govt. /Private), health of students, regularity of teachers in schools, and regularity of students in attending schools and remedial classes conducted by PRAYATNA. Thus, the assignment resulted in qualitative as well as quantitative assessment of students of PRAYATNA which provided a vital input to conduct Learning-level-specific programs in future to enhance the actual learning skills of students.
