School Edtech company LEAD announced the launch of India’s first Student Confidence Index, a study that assesses the confidence levels of school-going students across regions, cities, demographics and various other parameters.
Developed in collaboration with Tata Institute of Social Sciences, LEAD’s Index reveals several powerful insights into Student Confidence. While India stands at a Confidence level of 75 on a scale of 100, 36% of students have indicated top-bracket Confidence levels (81-100).
LEAD’s Student Confidence Index assesses the five 21st century Confidence-building attributes that are critical for students to succeed in life: Conceptual Understanding, Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Exposure to opportunities and platforms.
Commenting on the Index, LEAD Co-founder and CEO Sumeet Mehta said, “Our students need to have self-confidence. But there was no way of knowing the confidence level of students of our country. LEAD’s Student Confidence Index developed in partnership with Tata Institute of Social Sciences (LMRF, SMLS), fills this gap.”
“We are delighted to partner with LEAD in developing India’s first Student Confidence Index. The tool for building this Confidence Index followed a rigorous research process by the LMRF team at TISS,” added Dr. Rahul S, Assistant Professor, LMRF, SMLS, Tata Institute of Social Sciences.
