a part of its ongoing efforts to transform Mizoram’s Education System
to ensure quality education, the Mizoram Board of School Education
(MBSE) today organized a one day ‘Training on Question Setting
Technique’ for teachers of High School and Higher Secondary Schools at
HATIM Building, Chanmari, Lunglei. MBSE Secretary Pu Lalthangbika and
District Education Officer, Pu Lalramthianghlima graced the inauguration
while Michael Lalrinmawia, Academic Officer and F.Ricky Lalremruatpuia
Regional Officer MBSE were the Resource persons.
Speaking at the inauguration, MBSE secretary Pu Lalthangbika stated that MBSE, with its team of highly dedicated officers and staff, is making an all out effort to create the right ecosystem essential for imparting quality education in Mizoram. He pointed out that though the pass percentage in Mizoram Board Examinations have been steadily increasing over the years, the performance of Mizo students in All India level Entrance and Competitive exams have not shown a corresponding improvement. Rather, the current scenario seems to indicate that Mizo students are lagging behind their counterparts from the rest of the country in many respects. Recognizing the need to immediately address this issue at the grassroots level, the MBSE is now focused on transitioning from ‘content-based question’ to ‘competency based question’ which will require the students to grasp concepts and also encourage lateral thinking in them. Encouraging the trainees to freely raise their queries and concerns, the Secretary reiterated that the education system in Mizoram needs to evolve to meet the aspirational needs of the new generation.
The Government of Mizoram had in 2015 introduced the Integrated Evaluation Scheme (IES) from the academic session of 2016 - 2017 onwards with an aim to broaden the scope of evaluation and thereby utilize it for diagnosis and remedial teaching. A new updated version of the IES software with User Manual was also distributed to the trainees present.
