HOLISTIC PROGRESS CARD (HPC)
The NEP 2020 advocates that changes in the curriculum must accompany changes in assessment procedures and mechanisms, with a shift from testing rote memorization to more formative. The Policy calls for an assessment system that is continuous and formative, competency-based, and focuses on learning and the development of higher-order skills. The CBE implementation and tracking student learning can be enabled through Holistic Progress Card. The HPC introduction in India will be a bold drive to capture qualitative and quantitative school education data.
What is HPC?
HPC is a comprehensive report displaying all essential aspects of student’s holistic growth and development over a specified period of school years.
