National Evaluation Topics

ERO Education Reviews 

National Evaluation Topics (NETS) are decided from time to time. ERO gathers information on these topics during its reviews of individual schools and early childhood services, for a specified period. Usually, ERO will collate and analyse the information on these topics from individual reviews for a national evaluation report, which will be published on this website.

The topics chosen for national evaluations in Education Reviews need to reflect current issues. We do not make final decisions until a month or so before the beginning of the next school term. Topics are posted on this website. Findings are included in individual review reports.

Some information will be gathered through questionnaires we ask you to fill out before the review. The questionnaires are on ERO’s website or will be provided to you by your review coordinator.
