The first version (dbase) of the software, named as ‘District Information System for Education’ (DISE) was released by NIEPA during the middle of 1995. The district level professionals were assisted and trained in the establishment of EMIS units. The first major review of the DISE software was undertaken during 1997-  98 (PowerBuilder/SQL Anywhere). The software was later redesigned in 2001 in the light of requirements of the SSA (PowerBuilder/Oracle). Not only the coverage of DISE was extended to non-DPEP states but it was also extended from primary to the entire elementary level of education. DISE is under revision and the revised version will have the following additional variables:

Schools by Type of Boundary Wall,

Schools by Source of Drinking Water

Furniture for Teachers and Students and Availability of Kitchen Shed in the School

Enrolment by Minority  

Distribution of Children by Multiple Disabilities

Examination Results of SC and ST Students etc.

Efforts are being made to develop DISE as a complete user friendly menu-driven software. Some of the features that are being incorporated in the modified software are:

Complete flexibility will be provided to users to add ‘n’ number of state and district-specific supplementary variables in the Data-Capture Format and generate reports at all desired levels;

To improve the consistency of data, efforts are being made to highlight schools that reported inconsistent data;

Export data to popular formats such as Excel, Text etc. will be made available;

Users will be able to make data entry at Block level and then merge the data into single district level database by using the new improved DISE2001 Export Utility etc.

DISE 2001: Main Features 

The main features of DISE 2001 are briefly presented below:

The system covers eight years of schooling in all primary, upper primary and primary/upper primary sections of the secondary and higher secondary schools.

The concept and definitions of educational variables involved therein have been standardized at the national level and are  uniformally followed by all districts and states.

Manual aggregation of data at different levels is completely replaced by computerized data entry and report generation system.

It provides time-series data at school, village, cluster, block and district levels.

The system defines core data on school location, management, rural urban, enrolment, buildings, equipment, teachers, incentives, medium of instruction, children with disabilities, examination results and student flows.

Detailed data on individual teachers, para-teachers and community teachers and their profile, including data on in-service training received, is collected and made available.

It eliminates the chances of data manipulation at various levels. The school remains responsible for correctness of the data supplied. States need to ensure correctness of the data supplied on five per cent sample basis.

The states/districts have flexibility of adding supplementary variables depending upon their specific requirements on year-to-year basis. No additional software for computerization and analysis of state/district specific data is required.

The states/districts can develop their own large database using ‘designer’ module and integrate a variety of school/cluster/block level data with it. The software handles multiple databases at various levels and provides tools of data analysis and presentation.
