The Effects of the Use of a School Self-Evaluation Instrument
Schildkamp, Kim; Visscher, Adrie; Luyten, Hans
School Effectiveness and School Improvement, v20 n1 p69-88 Mar 2009
School quality care has become important in many Western countries. A number of self-evaluation instruments have been developed in response. The goal of these instruments is improving the quality of education. One such system, ZEBO, was developed for performing quality assessment in Dutch primary schools. The use of this self-evaluation instrument was studied in 79 primary schools in The Netherlands over a period of 5 years. The results of the multilevel analyses with repeated measures show that the use of the self-evaluation results had no effect on pupil achievement scores (so far). However, it did have other effects, for example, an impact on the professional development of teachers. (Contains 9 tables and 3 notes.)
