A 360-degree feedback also known as multi source feedback, or multi source assessment is a process through which feedback from peers, teachers, supervisors, parents as well as a self-evaluation by the students themselves is gathered. The NEP 2020 makes a second attempt to bring back this purpose of assessment in section 4.34. The key words once again are “regular and formative”, “competency-based”, “promotes learning and development” “tests higher-order skills, such as analysis, critical thinking, and conceptual clarity”. The report card will be a “holistic, 360-degree, multidimensional report”, reporting on the learners’ progress in “cognitive, affective, socio-emotional, and psychomotor domains”. The biggest advantage of a 360-degree report card is that it reduces the scope of prejudices, at all levels. Since the system is iterative in nature and provides a comprehensive report, it automatically removes bias.
