School Effectiveness: Identifying the Complexities.
Townsend, Tony
Conceptual problems in the school-effectiveness literature are examined in this paper, with a focus on the development of two models for school effectiveness. Four necessary components of an effective-schools model include the nature and extent of the educational goals, techniques for recognition, methods for measuring school effectiveness, and school processes. The first model presented deals with how to recognize an effective school. The second is a process model that identifies the complex interaction between goals and processes. The two models help to explain why school-effectiveness research has concentrated on the recognition of effective schools rather than an explication of how they achieved that status. Eight figures are included. (Contains 45 references.) (LMI)
