To assess whether a student can read alphabets, words, short paragraphs, or stories, the ASER tool was used where the evaluation was done through interaction with each child individually. In order to evaluate the reading skills in Kannada and English, the child was initially asked if they are comfortable reading words and if they could read it, they were then asked to attempt reading the paragraph. If they could comfortably read this as well, they were asked to attempt reading the stories. If the child had trouble reading words, they were asked to try and identify letters.
