Report cards in school usually show the marks and any inconsistency indicatesthat the student has gone wrong. However, neither the student nor theteacher can pin-point the root cause behind the irregularity in performance,thus limiting further improvement.ASSET believes in continuous improvement by solving the core problems.With ASSET, the evaluation is presented in the form of a detailed report for both students as well as teachers. Thecomprehensive analysis has a simplistic format and gives relevant information on the growth of the students.The reports are easy to infer and can be easily understood by students and teachers alike.The colour-coded format of the reports organizes the data and enables effortless browsing.The reports include a teacher as well as student centric report respectively – the Teacher MyBook and the StudentMyBook.ASSET, through extensive research in the field of learning, has made sure students, educators and parents can reaputmost benefits out of the evaluation process through the following assistance reports.Student AssistanceStudent Circular SkillProfile ChartIt shows the student’s skills based on 12comprehensive skill nodes in 3 subjects,namely, English, Maths and Science.ScorecardThe analysis, through objective questioning,provides a remedial tool to point out wherethe student is lacking in terms of clarity ofconcepts as well as silly mistakes.Strengths and WeaknessesAnalysisA thorough break-up of each skill intostrengths and weaknesses, which gives adetailed insight into the student’s progress.

The answers to the tests are also made available, with elaborate explanations, to enhance the self learning process and to equip the students with skills to avoid any flaws in future. MY BOOK
ASSET MyBook in my opinion is one of the best concepts of ASSET. It is a brilliant idea especially for weak students and helps them to get better clarity of concepts. It enriches students with a lot of productive knowledge. After seeing the questions and solving them, I got a lot of knowledge and I am really thankful to it. Shishir Garg, The Scindia School, GwaliorIt helped me identify my weak areas. I could see why I had made mistakes. It was a greatidea and is perfect for providing personalized feedback for weak students. I learned fromthe mistakes I made in the test. It also showed my strengths, so it gave me a scope for myscholastic talents.Dhruv Devulapalli, India International School, Bangalore It contains questions with detailed answers for us to improve especially in our weak areas. It’s because of these Personalised analysis report and practice questions that I have managed to improve in those areas which I used to find very hard.Jai Tatia, Manovikas English Medium School, Margao
