Later, we offered to provide brief assessments and conduct basic group discussions to test the fundamental cognitive skills of the prospective students. These assessments helped us decide whether the students needed to go through our courses or if they were ready for direct placements. We also provided them with report cards, detailed with our findings, at the end of the mela. The assessment test thereby also served to give the youth greater awareness in regards to his/her strengths and weaknesses. The information and knowledge we gathered from this mela gave us a better understanding on how best to approach the youth and helped us reevaluate our strategies to reach masses in a more effective manner.
