Self-Evaluation: What's in it for Schools?demystifies school self-evaluation and encourages schools to be self-critical and self-confident. The book helps schools and teachers develop the necessary confidence to work with evaluation tools. Accessible and packed with case studies, it tackles the issues that are at the forefront of the national agenda in most countries in Europe. Challenging ideas for the future are given through discussion of the concerns and issues of schools in the present day.

Editorial Reviews

'Self evaluation is very readable and packs much into its 150 pages ... The book is very accessible and clearly set out with questions posed throughout to stimulate reflections and discussion. It might be read alone and/or used in collaboration with colleagues as a preparation for external inspection. More usefully in my view it can be used to encourage the notion that continuous self-evaluation makes for a more open and transparent culture, one in which each person is valued for what they contribute.' - Educational Review 'For the practitioner, there are numerous helpful, ready-to-use examples of self-evaluation instruments ... that could be used in school and classroom contexts ... Overall this is a valuable discussion of the how and why of school self-evaluation and there is no doubt that teachers, headteachers and others would benefit from extracting practical instruments and ideas from the various chapters of this book.' - Educational Research
