Anyone with valid credentials can download the app and use it to initiate the Samblan process.

During each spot check visit, the visiting officer will select students randomly& ask skill-wise questions based on the student’s grade. The questions will be auto-populated in the app based on a pre-defined question bank. The user will just have to enter how many students could solve it

Basis this grade-wise data, percentage of students proficient in a given skill area will be calculated at block, district, state level for reviews
