Indicators background papers

As a starting point for the revision of the Evaluation Indicators for School Reviews (2011) ERO set up an Academic Experts Group.  We asked them to:

  • provide leadership in a key area of school effectiveness such as governance, curriculum, teaching and learning and engaging parents and families, and
  • prepare a critical commentary on the 2011 version of ERO’s evaluation indicators and the underpinning conceptual framework. 

Additional background papers discussed promoting and supporting improvement in schools through evaluation and considerations in the selection and use of evaluation indicators. 

Some of these papers are referenced in School Evaluation Indicators: Effective Practice for Improvement and Learner Success (2016).
