Guidelines for Filling‐up U‐DISE Data Capture Format 1 Brief introduction 1. U‐DISE stands for Unified District Information System for Education developed by National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA) and supported by MHRD. U‐DISE has mandate of collecting information from all recognised and unrecognised schools imparting formal education from Classes I to XII. It collects information on School particulars, Infrastructure, teachers, enrolment and examination results. U‐DISE has the school as the unit of data collection and district as the unit of data dissemination.

It is under implementation in all the districts of the country. 2. The objective of collecting information using U‐DISE is to improve the education level in the country by better planning, resource allocation and monitoring. Thus, information collected through U‐DISE is utilised for planning and implementation of various education related programmes and assessment of progress made.

3. The present document provides guidelines for filling up the U‐DISE Data Capture Format (DCF) which is used to collect U‐DISE data. The document is envisaged to provide support in collection of quality data at the school level and will help all personnel involved in collection of U‐DISE data to follow same definitions. 4. It is expected that all schools maintain records in various registers that are required to record school information and support in timely collection of U‐DISE data. In case the school records are not maintained/updated properly, it is recommended that the schools maintain and update all school records.

5. The data collection under U‐DISE is undertaken through the Data Capture Format (DCF) which contains static and dynamic data of a school. The static data involves information on the school location, type, management, and the level of school. The dynamic data covers information on the enrolment, repeaters. Schools are provided with a DCF that has the static data pre‐filled from previous year and are tasked with updating the dynamic data. In case, there is any change in the status of pre‐filled values, teachers are free to change the same by encircling the earlier value and writing the updated value besides.

6. It is advised that the school keeps all records required to fill the U‐DISE data readily available and updated to provide accurate data in a timely manner. Hence, institutionalization of school records and their updation is key to improving the quality of data collected through the U‐DISE. 7. After filling up the DCF, the teachers must review the formats to ensure that all the columns in the DCF are filled in and information provided at different places is consistent. For example, enrolment information by social category and age should match for all classes and gender. The guidelines for filling up the DCF are given below in tabular format consisting of the questions asked, guide to fill, school type for which the question is meant for, variable type and available codes.

It is a unique Code given in the first year of coverage under U‐DISE and used every year to ensure compatibility and comparison across years. The 11 digit code comprises its geographical location (first four digits representing the district, 2 digits for block, 3 digits for Village and last 2 digits for school). This code will remain constant for all future purposes and will only change in case of change in above geographical locations.

The District U‐DISE coordinator will guide you in managing the U‐DISE Codes in case of change in state / district / block / village reorganization. In case of new schools which are filling up the form for the first time, the school need not fill the U‐DISE code. This will be filled by the U‐DISE coordinator by generating new code in U‐DISE software.

Guidelines for Filling‐up U‐DISE Data Capture Format 51 Annexure ‐ I Guidelines for Identification of Children with Special Needs and Facilities Provided to CWSN Background Children with Special Needs (CWSN) require special attention to overcome their challenges and participate in education processes. This includes early identification of the impairment so that remedial and treatment services can be provided to them enabling them to participate in all development processes. Pre‐school and early schooling years are very important in identification of children with special needs as they are related to achievement of various development milestones of children.

Parents and Teachers in early years are key to identification of children with disabilities as they have the opportunity to observe children and also monitor key achievements that indicate early childhood development. The present guidelines are developed to support teachers in screening children for some of the important impairments and referring them to appropriate facilities and institutions for services. Various categories of Children with Special Needs covered are: 1. Blindness 2. Low Vision 3. Hearing Impairment 4. Speech Impairment 5. .Locomotor Impairment 6. Mental Retardness 7. Learning Disability 8.

Cerebral Palsy 9. Autism and 10. Multiple Disability. Nature of Disability The Guidelines for screening and identification of each type of Disability are provided as under. 1. Visual Impairment (Blindness): Blindness is defined as total absence of sight due to which a child cannot see. Total blindness is the complete lack of form and visual light perception and is clinically recorded as NLP, an abbreviation for "no light perception." Blindness is frequently used to describe severe visual impairment.

2. Visual Impairment (Low Vision): Low vision is a loss of eyesight that makes everyday tasks difficult. A person with low vision may find it difficult or impossible to accomplish activities such as reading, writing, shopping, watching television, driving or recognizing faces. Low Vision can be defined as presence of any 4 of the following symptoms. a) The child has difficulty in reading from the black board, even if s/he is sitting in the first row. b) The child keeps the book too far or too close to his/her eyes while reading.

Guidelines for Filling‐up U‐DISE Data Capture Format: 2014‐15 52 c) The child is not able to write in the prescribed space/line due to low vision.

d) The child finds difficult to identify objects/people at a distance (4 ‐5 meters or further). e) The child has problem in following moving objects. f) The child is not able to identify/match colours. g) The child has difficulty in identifying numbers, symbols and patterns h) The child has problem in following path. i) Lighting variation in the environment confuse the child. j) The child functions better when given bold print, good contrast, required illumination. k) The child is not able to reach the objects at about 14 inches. l) The child is not able to follow 2‐D representation of any object.

m) The child has difficulty in focusing because of unstable movement of the eye balls. n) The child gets confused between the shadows and the level changes. o) The child has problem in recognizing actions and facial expression. p) The child mobility is badly affected in semi‐dark area. 3. Hearing Impairment: Hearing impairment is a partial or total inability to hear. In children it may affect the development of language and can cause work related difficulties for adults. Hearing Impairment can be identified based on the following: a) Does the child have problems paying attention in class? b) Does the child favour one ear for listening purpose? c) Does the child have problems to hear when you speak to him from behind? d) Do you think that the child speaks too loudly or too softly? e) Does the child exhibit voice problem and mispronunciation? f) Does the child keep away from his/her age mates? g) Is the child unable to respond when you call from the other room?

Section L: Facilities provided to Children with Special Needs This section covers information on facilities provided to Children with Special Needs (CWSN) in the School.

This includes provision of Brail books, Brail kits, low vision kits, Hearing Aids, Braces, Crutches, Wheel Chairs, Tricycles and Callipers. Definitions of each of the equipment are provided below along with photographs depicting the special devise.

1. Brail Books: Braille is a tactile writing system used by the blind and the visually impaired. It is traditionally written with embossed paper. Braille characters are small rectangular blocks called cells that contain tiny palpable bumps called raised dots. The number and arrangement of these dots distinguish one character from another. Braille cells are not the only thing to appear in embossed text. There may be embossed illustrations and graphs, with the lines either solid or made of series of dots, arrows, bullets that are larger than braille dots, etc. 2. Braille Kits: Braille can be written with a Braille writing machine (similar to a typewriter).

It can also be written by using a pointed stylus to punch dots on slightly thick paper (Chart paper) using a Braille slate with rows of small "cells" in it, as a guide. This

Guidelines for Filling‐up U‐DISE Data Capture Format 57 method of writing Braille is similar to writing text with a pen or pencil on a paper. Braille kit includes, specially designed Braille learning tools and tools for learning arithmetic and geometry. It can be used by anyone to teach a blind student from the age of four and above. 3. Low Vision Kits: Low Vision Kit is used by sighted individuals to gain a better understanding of the functional impact of visual impairment or low vision. The Kit contains goggles and interchangeable visual acuity and visual pathology simulations, as well as peripheral field restriction simulations that allow people with low vision to view and read material.

4. Hearing Aids: A hearing aid or deaf aid is an electroacoustic device which is designed to amplify sound for the wearer, usually with the aim of making speech more intelligible, and to correct impaired hearing as measured by audiometry. 5. Braces: Dental braces are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person's bite, while also working to improve dental health. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. 6. Crutches: A crutch is a mobility aid that transfers weight from the legs to the upper body. It is often used for people who cannot use their legs to support their weight, for reasons ranging from short‐term injuries to lifelong disabilities 7.

Often there are handles behind the seat for someone else to do the pushing. Wheelchairs are used by people for whom walking is difficult or impossible due to illness, injury, or disability.

8. Tricycles: Special needs tricycles are designed to help disabled person become mobile Hand‐pedaled recumbent tricycles make it possible for those without the use of their legs. Children, teens and adults with cerebral palsy and similar disorders can select tricycles specially designed to increase strength and coordination 9. Calipers: Calipers are special devises designed to enable patients afflicted with physical deformities to overcome their mobility restrictions like polio patients.
