Source: UDISE+ 2020-21& 2021-22 *ASER: Age-specific enrolment ratio.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is age-specific enrolment ratio? ASER?

Age-specific Enrolment Ratio (ASER), is calculated wither for a single-age or age-group children and consider the total enrolment of that age or age group irrespective of the grade or level of Education in which a child is enrolled which is then divided by single-age/age-group child population and multiplied by 100 to obtain ASER.

What is adjusted-Net Enrolment Ratio/Rate?

Unlike NER, which considers net enrolment of children of an age group (by eliminating the overage and underage children), the Adjusted-NER not only considers enrolment of the relevant age group but children of that age group enrolled in one level higher than the prescribed grades/level.

What is Net Enrolment Ratio/Rate (NER)?

Unlike GER, NER only considers enrolment of the relevant age group divided by the corresponding child-age population. For example, enrolment of Grades 1 to V aged 6 to 10+ years is divided by the 6 to 10+ age population multiplied by 100 to obtain NER at the primary level of Education.

What is Gross Enrolment Ratio/Rate (GER)? How is participation of children is measured in India?

The gross enrolment Ratio is obtained by dividing the enrolment by the relevant age group child population. In the case of GER at the primary level, total enrolment in Grades I to V, irrespective of age, is considered, which is then divided by the corresponding child population ( 6 to 10+ years) and multiplied by 100 to obtain GER at the primary level. Because of overage and underage children, the GER is considered a crude indicator of children’s participation in educational programs. Therefore, it presents a misleading picture and is generally not used in plan formulation.
