Developing, Testing, and Using Theoretical Models for Promoting Quality in Education
Creemers, Bert; Kyriakides, Leonidas
School Effectiveness and School Improvement, v26 n1 p102-119 2015
This paper argues that the dynamic model of educational effectiveness can be used to establish stronger links between educational effectiveness research (EER) and school improvement. It provides research evidence to support the validity of the model. Thus, the importance of using the dynamic model to establish an evidence-based and theory-driven approach to school improvement is stressed. In this context, the dynamic approach to school improvement (DASI), which attempts to use the knowledge base of EER for improvement purposes, is presented. Beyond presenting the essential characteristics, assumptions, and stages of DASI, its relationship with the dynamic model is clarified. Moreover, studies investigating the impact of DASI on promoting student learning outcomes are presented. These studies reveal the conditions in which DASI can promote student learning outcomes. Finally, suggestions for further research are provided.
