Unnayan Banka: Impact of implementation | From students of Banka
Improvement in Performance of Students
The daily performance of the students were analysed using AI based Mobile Platform (Eckovation) providing adaptive feedback to students. This helped in the continuous monitoring of the performance of students.
- Nazia Bano from Project Girls High School, Katoria, Banka was not able to learn Science as a subject because of unavailability of teachers in the school. She could not afford Science tuitions as she comes from BPL family and her mother supports their livelihood by sewing clothes. She did not have much interest in studies and somewhere accepted the fact that she’ll also be working like her mother for daily wages. The Unnayan Session has helped her gain interest in studies with the help of animated and interactive video lectures and prepare well for the exams, and now her performance has increased meticulously from an average of 26% in the baseline test (conducted before starting the Unnayan Session) to an average of 94% in the analysis tests (conducted after completion of the Unnayan Session).
- Rinki Kumari from Project Girls High School, Chandan, Banka comes from Neelkothi Village and on her way to school she crosses Chandan River which overflows during rainy season. Besides such barriers, she regularly comes to school to attend Unnayan Session. The animated and interactive Video Lectures has helped her get interest in the studies and she has gradually improved a lot.
- Suman Kumar Paswan from CMS Sr Secondary High School, Shahpur, Banka has to work after school hours to support his family as his father is unemployed.

Unnayan Session helped him by providing only 1 hr daily sessions . The Audio-visual learning modules improved his retention capabilities and now he’s the most regular students.
