The ASSET questions have been widely recognized for their ability to trigger the thinking process in children and to expose them to a fresh and unique way to check their own understanding of key concepts covered in the school curriculum. The ASSET Question-A-Day (AQAD) is a set of thought provoking questions that aim to make students more accustomed to skill-based questions on a regular basis.
Sharing one such example from Presidency School, R T Nagar, Bangalore
AQAD is used everyday to give exposure to good questions that trigger real learning among students. In Presidency School, a print out of the ASSET Question a day is taken and put it up on the notice board. Students go through the question and submit their answers in the form of chit. They put this chit in an ASSET pouch, specially designed by the students of each class.
The next day, one entry from each class is selected and the winning student gets a chocolate. This activity has created a lot of buzz in the school and students look forward to answering the questions daily.

EI has over 15 years of expertise in education, with a deep understanding of child psychology and efficient methods of teaching, based on detailed research and a formidable database of student learning through ASSET.
Our detailed research has proven that children today respond to rote-based questions relatively well, however, they fail to answer unfamiliar or application based questions due to unclear core concepts.
