Evaluation framework

ERO gathered and analysed information from early childhood services in response to the following evaluation questions:

  • To what extent is self review understood and implemented in early childhood services?
  • how well is self review understood in this service?
  • to what extent is self review supported in this service?
  • how well is self review implemented in this service?
  • to what extent is self review improving management and educator practice?
  • what other factors contribute to the way self review is implemented in this service?

ERO developed indicators for each evaluative question and these are included in Appendix 1 of this report. They were used by review officers as a framework for making judgements about each service’s self review.
