With the outbreak and fast spread of the covid-19 epidemic, most schools in India have closed, students learning at home has become a normal trend. This is also a realistic choice for effectively preventing and controlling the epidemic and jointly maintaining public health. Distance learning provides students with online courses. Students can use mobile phones, computers, or TVs to attend classes and study at home. However, many areas in India lack reliable Internet. The conditions and cost of Internet access can be prohibitive for poorer areas, especially in some rural areas. In extreme cases, those students without any cell phone/ computer and students who cannot access the Internet will be completely excluded. In addition, students who use computers and cell phones for learning obviously have different learning experiences and effects. Many students also said that the effect of studying at home is much worse than the effect of studying at school because they are always distracted by the trivial things at home and cannot concentrate on the teaching content. Based on this situation, some primary and secondary schools in India have reopened one after another. Under the daily epidemic prevention measures, students who go to school will not be daily. It could be rotational, on alternate days, or every two days. and students will wear masks and sit six feet apart in classrooms to learn. In order to ensure the health of students, the government requires schools not to conduct any assessments for at least two to three weeks after reopening, and the pen-and-paper test format to be discouraged across all grades. The assessment should give priority to role plays, choreography, class quiz, puzzles and games, brochure designing, presentations, journals, portfolios, etc. to be prioritized, to improve students’ learning outcomes through interactive learning and assessment methods.
