A First Review and Register of School and College Initiated Self-Evaluation Activities in the United Kingdom.
A research project to investigate various developments in school self-evaluation was initiated in the United Kingdom. Three major studies were involved. The first examined the operation of local education-agency-initiated school evaluation schemes. The second explored initiatives in self-evaluation. The final study investigated the In-Service Education and Training (INSET) provision related to evaluation. The original advertisement in the London Times Educational Supplement, used to gather information for the study, is reproduced. This document is concerned with the subject of the second study, school-based initiatives in self-evaluation. The first part is a review of evaluation activities. The author amassed information from schools, colleges, and teachers concerning specific self-evaluation activities. These were classified according to levels including institutional, departmental, and teacher self-evaluation. Sectors were defined to correspond approximately with grade level. The dimensions of the activities were identified as initiatives, involvement, purposes, organization, focus, methods, and reports. The second part is a register which illustrates examples of institutional, departmental, and teacher self-evaluations used in several institutions. Student self-assessment schemes are included in an appendix. (DWH)
