New Delhi: Failure of schools to help their students achieve specified learning outcomes may attract court cases or government action, according to amendments in rules under the Right to Education Act.

Learning outcomes are assessment standards which help teachers understand the learning levels of students in their respective classes, individually as well as collectively.

The HRD Ministry has issued a gazette notification informing that the Centre has amended the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Rules, 2010, to include provision for the preparation of class-wise learning outcomes.

All the states, except for Jammu and Kashmir, have been asked to prepare "class-wise, subject-wise learning outcomes for all elementary classes", according to the notification.

It has also asked the states to devise guidelines for putting into practice continuous and "comprehensive evaluation to achieve the defined learning outcomes".

The notification makes it mandatory for all schools to achieve the minimum learning outcome by the end of every academic year.
