Research Study on Diksha

Central Square Foundation


Service: Research & Studies

Diksha, a national education technology program of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), supports teachers and students with access to digital resources. One of the products is the Extended Textbooks (ETB), which has embedded QR codes to enable the link to digital resources. Development Solutions is conducting a research study for the Central Square Foundation, which is supporting the initiative at the Central and State levels. The survey across four states will interview 2928 teachers, students and parents to assess current use and perceptions. Classroom observations will evaluate the engagement of teachers and students. Qualitative interactions with key stakeholders will help understand their commitment, incentives and institutional structure that facilitates Diksha.
