A Review of Achievements and Limitations in British School Effectiveness Research.
Reynolds, David
An overview of the achievements and limitations in British school effectiveness research is provided in this paper. In contrast to educational research conducted in the United States, school effectiveness and school improvement disciplines in Great Britain have only begun to emerge within the last 13 years. Topics discussed in this study include the effect of school size on students, differential effectiveness, the consistency of effectiveness over time, school effectiveness characteristics, the future of school effectiveness research in Great Britain, and the lack of integration between school effectiveness research and school improvement practice. A conclusion is that school effectiveness findings have been poorly translated into British school improvement programs. Both disciplines need each other, in that school improvement programs offer empirical tests of school effectiveness research, and school effectiveness research can provide sensitive descriptions of good practice.
