Performance Grading Index (PGI) is a relatively new index that measures the performance of states in school education. Department of School Education &Literacy (DoSEL) has so far released PGI report for States/ UTs for the years 2017-18 to 2019-20. PGI aims to assess the relative performance of all the State/UTs in a uniform scale to encourage State/UTs to perform better.
The PGI has been conceptualized as a tool to catalyse transformational change in the field of school education. PGI provides insights on the status of school education in States & UTs, including key levels that drive their performance and critical areas of performance. PGI aims to propel States & UTs towards undertaking multipronged interventions that will bring about the much desired optimal education outcomes. The PGI also motivates States and UTs to adopt best practices followed by the top performing States.
