The Quality Education Checklist: An Instrument for Self-Auditing. Developing Quality Schools: Learning Module #2. Making It Work--The Quality Schools Approach.
Barlosky, Martin; Lawton, Stephen
The Quality Education Checklist focuses on key inputs, processes, and outputs of schools needed to ensure continuous improvement. Intended as a self-auditing aid for schools, the checklist may also be used as a method to define the priority of areas for improvement, as a way to gather information from customers, as a professional development resource, and as a method of collecting data for accountability reports. The checklist has 10 headings: access, services for customers, leadership, physical environment and resources, effective learning, students, staff, external relations, organization, and standards. These are further divided into 28 subheadings. The checklist may be completed either individually or as a small-group activity. Opportunities for improvement are identified by assessing both the quality and the importance of a particular characteristic and service. There is space for individual comments, for deciding priorities, and for noting successes and improvement opportunities. (MLH)
