REAP CELL ( Research and Experiments For Action & Policy )

    Basic Function of Wing:


    REAP is the research department established by the Department of School Education Haryana in July 2011 under the aegis of SCERT Haryana. REAP has a core team to carry out research activities with the help of its Action Research Associates (also called ARAs) who are the permanent teachers, lecturers from the department of School Education Haryana deputed at different DIETs to conduct research & monitoring activities at district level. Currently, there are 10 ARAs working in 9 districts of the State which includes Ambala, Bhiwani, Faridabad, Hisar, Jind, Kaithal, Karnal, Kurukshetra and Mahendergarh. All the ARAs have been trained by REAP core team to carry out survey activities.

    With regards to research, we work on Core REAP Research Projects which mainly include educational surveys & policy/scheme evaluation, Independent projects like Action Research by DIETs, Capacity Building trainings of DIET & School faculty and other projects as assigned by department.


    REAP was established with the aim to institute research and monitoring activities within the Department for timely and efficient feedback into policy making. In addition, it also helps in smooth implementation of various projects & surveys which ultimately leads to improved learning outcomes for student.
