The checklist which forms this toolkit lists some of the characteristics associated with the successful use of electronic data to promote school effectiveness.
For each statement you are asked to decide the extent of development of current practice towards the Systemic use of performance data.
What the toolkit does, once it has been completed, is give you an overview of:
a) whether the school is a data confident institution
b) the headteacher’s leadership in the use of electronics data
c) the role of middle leaders in assuming standards in their subject
Ok, so it’s not the ‘be all and end all’ but a useful toolkit nonetheless imho.
