Chhattisgarh Government Schools
Square Panda India conducted a study with students across grades 1-5 from 7 schools in Dhamtari, Chhattisgarh over 5 weeks. These students were first generation learners with no access to education outside the school.
In week 1, pre-assessments showed weak reading and comprehension skills. By week 2, 80% students answered reading questions correctly, and 76% of them answered comprehension questions correctly.
Our final assessment showed 300% improvement in word reading, and 125% improvement in sentence reading.
Our intervention with this non-profit organisation, with SKG and Grade 1 children from low-income communities. Students were introduced to multiple Square Panda India programs, for 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week. The students improved across skills, right from month 1.
We conducted assessments each month, while exploring different teaching-learning methods. By the end of the study, children had become more confident and interested in learning, with weaker students showing progress of 44%. There was considerable improvement in literacy outcomes & students could independently use tablets leading to digital literacy in students.
This pilot had children from BMC schools use only our application, without any external intervention. Grade 2 students spent 15 minutes a day with our early literacy program, 4-5 times a week.
In the beginning, we saw that reading and comprehension were the weakest skills, similar to what we observed in Chhattisgarh. Our final assessment showed an overall improvement of 75% in reading skills, and our interactive, digital game-based learning system piqued learners curiosity.
