Facilitated by Pratham, the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) is a citizen-led household survey of children's foundational learning levels. Reaching over 600,000 children each year, ASER is the only annual source of information on children's learning outcomes available in India today.

Making of ASER

Spread over the 100 day ASER cycle, this introduction to ASER pulls together a variety of media to showcase a specific aspect of survey design and implementation every fortnight.

This fortnight: ASER ka 'aser'
