and suffered a defeat from his three games on the last day of the Rapid section at Saint Louis Rapid and Blitz while Garry Kasparov scored a win and two losses with both the world champions finishing in a tie for the last place Levon Aronian emerged as the best scorer at the end a thrilling last round when all the five games ended decisively underscoring the triumph of the competitive format of the event Viswanathan Anand struggling with his form Austin Fuller The Blitz part of the event start from Thursday with points system reverting back to the regular format with a win being given onepoint a draw with a half and nil for a loss Unlike the Rapid event all the players play each other twice in Blitz which means that an equal number of points can be scored in the rest of the tournament The Grand Prix points of the Grand Chess Tour will be calculated on the combined points scored both in the Rapid and Blitz sections which means that the tournament is very much alive going into its last two days Anand’s day was almost forgettable as he started off with two draws against the Quang Liam Le and Fabiano Caruana before losing an one-sided game to World Championship challenger Sergey Karjakin in the ninthand final round of the Rapid event Looking at Anand’s games it was easy to decipher the fatigue behind the moves coming after a long ninegames of the Sinquefield Cup which has obviously taken its toll on the Indian ace In a sedate day when Anand could find it difficult to pose any difficulties for his opponents his games against the Vietnamese Grandmaster Le set the pace of the day An extremely complicated rook endgame saw Anand seemingly create winning chances with a passed pawn and an apparent advantage But Le’s protected passer and Anand’s inactive king meant the game never went into the danger mark for Le Against Caruana in the 8th round Anand almost never really obtained an advantage against the Petroff and the game ended in a draw in 30 moves after cautious manoeuvring by both the sides The last game was a difficult one for Anand as he was mild pressure in the middlegame from the black side of a Guioco Piano Perhaps in eagerness to get free from defending the position all along he tried to initiate complications but it proved to be costly In the quest to attack the opponent’s pawns he allowed Karjakin to develop a mating attack on the black king which ended in a painful resignation in 37 moves faced with resignation Kasparov continued to entertain the spectators both at the tournament hall and online Interest for the event soared as the Kasparov’s eagerness to play for a win at all costs resulted in dramatic games but at the same time equal amount of chances for his opponents too to beat him The very first game of the day against Czech Grandmaster David Navara was a heartbreak of a game both for Kasparov and the eager spectators at the Chess Club and Scholastic Centre of Saint Louis Playing in the gambit style with white pieces reminiscent of his peak years Kasparov played with tremendous energy and created a winning position by the 25th move But he has found handling the clock an issue throughout this event and this crucial practical factor proved to be his undoing as he squandered many winning chances and finally blundered his way to a loss in 50 moves An exasperated Kasparov threw his hands up in disgust and stormed out of the hall He did score a win against Le in the 8th round but that was a lucky win as Le just placed a rook on an unfortunate square where it could be captured by Kasparov’s bishop In the final round he was outplayed by Caruana in a long grinding game The final day truly belonged to Aronian as he defeated Karjakin and Dominguez Perez while holding Nakamura for a draw However with the Blitz leg of the event still to go he can expect stiff challenge from the young trio of Nakamura Caruana and Nepomniachtchi Results: (7th Round) Le Drew with Anand Kasparov Lost to Navara Caruana

News By:Yamini Aiyar The Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) released last week forced India’s policymakers yet again to confront the unfortunate realities of our primary education system In its 10-year history ASER has challenged the fundamental assumption of elementary education policy: that the expansion of the schooling system would ensure that children learn Indeed in the last decade while the Centre was able to expand the system through the provision of inputs — enrolment is now near universal more than 35 lakh new schools have been constructed and 10 lakh new teachers recruited — ASER showed that learning outcomes were stagnant and in 2010 declined For instance the percentage of children in standard V who could read a standard II text was 53 per cent in 2006 537 per cent in 2010 47 per cent in 2013 and 481 per cent in 2014 The 12th Five-Year Plan shifted the goal post by explicitly articulating learning improvements as the stated aim for education policy In response states have started experimenting and in August 2014 the Centre launched the nationwide Padhe Bharat Badhe Bharat programme to focus on improving basic reading writing and arithmetic skills in standard I and II The challenge now lies in ensuring that these shifts in policy translate into meaningful action on the ground For a country where the bureaucracy has been designed and incentivised to provide schooling inputs this is a formidable challenge For one despite the evidence there is no consensus among policymakers on the constraints to learning and appropriate solutions Over the last year Accountability Initiative has been talking to education bureaucrats in Bihar to capture their perceptions of the learning problem Their responses ranged from problems related to poor policy choices including the right to education’s (RTE’s) no-detention policy systemic issues such as weak governance the prevalence of non-teaching duties and lack of teacher accountability low levels of parental interest and the resultant low student attendance But astonishingly the debates on learning are divorced from classroom realities At no point in the many conversations we have had has the teaching-learning process come up No one talked about pedagogical practices or the strengths and limitations of the curricula Yet evidence suggests that when the focus shifts to the classroom things can improve This is best highlighted in MIT’s Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab’s recent evaluation of Pratham’s experiments on “teaching at the right level” These experiments are premised on the assumption that improving learning outcomes requires a strategic re-organisation of the classroom such that curricula and pedagogical strategies are aligned to student learning levels rather than grade-level expectations In other words if a standard V student can barely read a standard II text teaching ought to be adjusted to what the child knows so that she acquires basic skills rather than sticking to the prescribed curriculum in the expectation that the child will catch up Despite the proven success of the method efforts to sustain and scale up these experiments have hit a wall Partly because of the entrenched focus on inputs This is because efforts to change the teaching-learning dynamic have not been accompanied by a wider shift in the workings of the bureaucracy Plans and budgets are still based on inputs rather than learning targets The RTE act with its focus on improving schooling inputs served to further legitimise the need for the education bureaucracy to stay focused on schooling In fact the entire decision-making system is based on data collected through the District Information System for Education a nationwide school-based database which doesn’t have a single indicator on learning This sends a clear message that schooling remains the priority The first step to breaking out of the schooling trap is to redesign the financing system so that plans are based on clearly articulated learning goals and budgets are tied to performance on learning outcomes This will need to be supported by a credible system to track learning progress The Centre has already taken some small steps in this direction by starting state-level learning assessments These measures must be accelerated and prioritised in the years to come This focus on inputs is exacerbated by the hierarchical rule-driven culture of the bureaucracy Lower-level administrators’ understanding of performance is based on responsiveness to authority rather than school needs Consequently the administration only functions when “ordered” to do so And these orders are rarely about the classroom When we interviewed cluster officers (tasked with providing “academic support” to teachers) in Bihar one recalled 22 tasks he had been ordered to complete in 2014 Only three were related to learning No surprise then that in their routine school visits they rarely pay attention to the classroom Based on tracking the time-use of cluster officers in two districts in Bihar on average a school visit lasts 15 hours of which only 15-20 minutes are spent in classrooms And on the rare occasions that they interact with teachers on instructional practices it is usually to assert authority rather than offer constructive support This absence of academic engagement in government schools has served to deepen the problem of teacher accountability After all if teachers are neither encouraged nor monitored for the quality of teaching how can they be held accountable It is instructive that when these same unaccountable teachers are trained to participate in “teaching at the right level” experiments their performance improves dramatically No effort to improve learning outcomes is likely to succeed if it doesn’t confront this reality Building management systems that empower local officials and teachers to function as providers of learning in schools is critical The writer is
