Structured Assessment for Analyzing Learning (SAFAL) – 2024-25

SAFAL: Structured Assessment for Analyzing Learning (SAFAL), a competency-based diagnostic assessment as per the recommendation of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 at para 4.40, was launched by CBSE in its affiliated schools in July, 2021. As part of our continuous efforts to enhance the quality of education and foster competency-focused learning, SAFAL is being conducted in July 2024 for the students of grades 5 and 8 of schools affiliated to CBSE. The detailed schedule of assessment is given at annexure- 1.
The following points should be noted for effective conduct of this assessment:

  1. SAFAL is a diagnostic assessment aimed at assessing the achievement of competencies by learners. This is neither a competition nor a qualifying/certification exam. The primary purpose of SAFAL is to diagnose the areas where more efforts are required for quality teaching-learning in the school.
  1. As SAFAL is a competency based assessment, no extra class or specific preparation is needed. Classroom teaching that is competency focused and learner centric is sufficient.
  1. Only the school-level competency reports will be given to all participating schools. Schools will be able to see only their own report without any comparison with any other school.
  1. The school level reports of SAFAL assessments will not be made public and will not be shared with any other school. This will be done to ensure that the results remain confidential and the school is able to extract maximum benefit from the results and feedback provided through the SAFAL reports.
  1. Thus, SAFAL is a tool for assessment of the teaching-learning practices at schools and should be taken with this spirit only.

  1. It is the responsibility of the school authorities to ensure that the SAFAL assessment is conducted in their schools with utmost sincerity and integrity, as per standard operating procedures and guidelines for SAFAL provided by the Board from time to time.
  1. It is highlighted that the technical foot-prints will be on record during the administration of this assessment and data scrutiny will be carried out.

We look forward to your continued support for this prestigious project.

Process for Editing

Note: The Edit Window will be open from 28th June 204 to 5th July 2024. It will give registered schools an opportunity to review and edit/update the data submitted during SAFAL 2024-25 registration.
During this window, schools must review and make necessary corrections, if required. Schools are requested to:

  1. Ensure that data of students in Grades 6 and 9 for the academic year 2024-25 is entered

(those who have been in grades 5 and 8 in the academic session 2023-24).

  1. Fill only the CORRECT numbers of computers, available in school, connected to SINGLE LAN. Please note, that the batch size of students appearing for the assessment depends entirely upon the numbers of computers connected to a SINGLE LAN
  2. Select “Hindi” only if the school is a Hindi-medium school. This selection will help the school to participate in the SAFAL Hindi Pilot (August 2024) for the students who are studying with the medium Hindi.
  3. Review and correct any other details such as teacher information (those who have taught Grades 5 and 8 in Academic Session 2023-24) or any other incorrect entries.
