Following an introduction, the second section presents an overview of the Scottish public education governance structure. The third section outlines efforts of Her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools to develop criteria for evaluating school effectiveness. The Qualitative Performance Indicators Project is described in the fourth section, with explanations of individual indicators at the primary and secondary levels.
