Using evidence in school improvement

Module code: 11 23964

Value: 20 credits

Teachers are expected to use evidence to review the progress of individual pupils, staff and whole schools. Making the most of this evidence requires us to have a sharp understanding of what it shows and what it does not. The programme will develop capacity for critical use of the data (such as value added measures, inspection reports and budgets) and international research evidence (qualitative and quantitative) which can inform teaching and school organisation.

Assessment

One 3,000 word critical evaluation of two pieces of published research and one 1,000 word outline for small-scale practice research
