Traditionally Achievement Surveys in India are being conducted by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), initially for Grade I, III and V, which was later extended to Grade VIII and recently to Grade X.

In this section, reports generated by the NCERT over a period of time has been presented.
