Gather evidence to develop relevant inquiry
School leaders all over New Zealand are developing school-wide initiatives, but how do they know they are getting involved in the right work?
Developing relevant inquiry for schooling improvement requires quality evidence from multiple sources. Standardised assessments can provide a formative diagnosis for what is and is not working. This is the starting point for a reflective and adaptive way forward.
You could use:
- the wellbeing@school survey to provide evidence of a positive school climate from student and teacher points of view
- the Teaching & School Practices tool to understand teachers’ assumptions about their effective pedagogical practices, and to evaluate the outcomes of the professional learning you provide
- literacy assessment information from STAR and PAT Reading Comprehension and Vocabulary to review the impact of strategies you’ve implemented.
NZCER Education Advisers are accredited facilitators. They offer customised online 'meetings' or face-to-face workshops, to support effective use of the data you gather. This assessment support can be funded through allocated PLD hours.
