Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) is a citizen-led, household-based survey. ASER 2020 is the first ever phone-based ASER survey. Conducted in September 2020, the sixth month of national school closures due to COVID-19, the survey explores provision of and access to distance education mechanisms, materials and activities for children in rural India, and the ways in which children and families are engaging with these remote learning alternatives from their homes. ASER 2020 was conducted in 26 states and 4 Union Territories. It reached a total of 52,227 households and 59,251 children in the age group of 5-16 years, as well as teachers or head teachers from 8,963 government schools offering primary grades.
