Alpha testing is a type of acceptance testing; performed to identify all possible issues/bugs before releasing the product to everyday users or public. The focus of this testing is to simulate real users by using blackbox and whitebox techniques. The aim is to carry out the tasks that a typical user might perform.

Scholarships For Students Pursuing UG Programs From Disadvantaged Sections Of The Society
In 2011, 100 years after IISc admitted its first batch of students in 1911, the Institute began offering a unique 4-year Bachelor of Science (Research) programme. This undergraduate programme is carefully designed to offer specialization in a science subject, but the knowledge imparted carries a strong interdisciplinary flavour, including courses in the engineering and humanities streams. The programme receives more than 10,000 applications each year. Some of the brightest students in the country are selected through rigorous entrance exams such as the Joint Entrance Examination and the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test. Of the first batch of students who graduated in July 2015, nearly 30 students have taken up competitive PhD positions in prestigious international universities. Through this fund, IISc plans to provide scholarship support to those who are from disadvantaged sections of the society, who come to IISc from all over the country, including far-flung regions such as the Northeast.

Slow Learners Project
It looks strange that students after studying for 6 to 7 years in school do not learn even Kannada alphabets & simple mathematics let alone other subjects. They cannot read what is return on the boards or read the prescribed text books They come for mid day meals & milk offered by the government. They drop out of the schools and may create problems in society.

Most schools lack infrastructure and wherever infrastructure has been set up, there is no trained resource available to run computer classes. This Project intends to bridge this gap. Project Partners

Arts In Education - Making Happy Classrooms. Empowering Teachers To Create A Joyful Learning Experience For Children.
According to several studies, our schooling system faces a very high number of drop-outs, a huge population of out of school children, wide disparities in classrooms and significant learning gaps in primary level. Nationally, 29% of children drop out before completing five years of primary school. In the absence of an engaging curriculum, children from marginalized background are deprived of a joyful learning experience. NalandaWay uses the power of arts in significantly improving the engagement levels of children in the classroom, encourages self expression and stimulates their imagination. Our Arts In Education program trains teachers to expand the creativity of students, helps them connect better with students thereby reducing absenteeism and drop out rates. The AIE program is delivered by the primary school teachers within the school working hours. NalandaWay provides a structured training & orientation to teachers in changing their roles to student-centric facilitators. Each session will be for a duration of 75-90 minutes and the sessions are held once a week. Twenty sessions are planned in a year. Students are divided into small groups of 5 and they complete the exercises under the guidance of teachers. The learning outcome of every session is reinforced by the teachers. A NalandaWay Project Associate is mapped to ten schools. He/She provides the ongoing Mentoring to teachers and monitors the conduct of the sessions. The Baseline, Midline and Endline Surveys quantitatively measure the impact of the program and its outcomes. Necessary course corrections are identified from the analyses and implemented on an ongoing basis.

Development Of Science Education And Teachers' Training At IISc Challakere
By: REC
The motivation for the teacher training programme stems from the following rationale: 1) The average intelligence of students in our country is quite high. However, their learning is directly related to their teachers’ skills. Teachers need to be excited and knowledgeable about scientific concepts themselves to inspire students to understand and pursue science. Science and mathematics teachers represent perhaps the biggest human resource in the country.One teacher teaches ~100 to 120 students in high schools and universities in India. Therefore, an assured way to improve education standards is to train teachers at all levels, which will have an immensely beneficial multiplier effect. There is immense scope for improving science education in India by providing novel training to teachers. 2) India has moved from mass education to higher education. About 25% of students after completing Pre-University go on to higher education towards science, engineering, medicine and agriculture. Dreams of young students to get into centers of higher learning such as IITs, NITs, IISERs, IISc and distinguished medical institutions can be fulfilled only if they have received sound knowledge in their high schools and pre-university (11-12th standard) colleges. They can become leaders in science if our universities can give them quality education when they enter colleges and universities. 3) A critical issue that needs to be urgently addressed is how to make the schools equipped with trained teachers and experimental facilities that work reliably in schools and help the teachers teach science effectively. Learning science through experimental demonstrations in classes and learning theory by doing experiments have to be initiated urgently.
