While the method of learning is changing, it is imperative for us to work on newer ways of measuring skills and results. MyPedia Achievement Testdoes this. It is built around inquiry-based, experimental learning and embraces individual differences of students, it also encourages students to think out-of-the-boxand be problem solvers” he added.

The test has been specially designed to facilitate seamless student engagement and scope for individual, differentiated assessment.  One of the most compelling features of the achievement test is that it aims to bridge gap between teachers, students and parents.
