Evaluate is an online self-evaluation service specifically designed for headteachers and principals. Evaluate enables schools and colleges to appraise their present and potential effectiveness by assessing the school's perceived performance against 11 key characteristics identified by international research into school effectiveness and successful performance.

Four powerful surveys

The full Evaluate service is a set of four surveys and a comparative report to highlight differences of perception in your key constituencies. The surveys can be used together or independently to analyse specific groups.

Evaluate Staff

Canvasses and analyses the views of all staff – irrespective of role – and can be completed in about 10-15 minutes. The staff report indicates how opinions vary between groups of staff.

Evaluate Parents

Enables you to make consultation with parents a constructive and worthwhile exercise, giving you a representative set of opinions on a range of important topics.

Evaluate Pupils

Understand how pupils perceive provision in your school. The survey can be conducted during registration, a tutorial session or an ICT class. Primary and secondary versions available.

Evaluate Governors

Canvasses and analyses the views of governors and is powerful as comparative information. The 10-15 minute survey can often be conveniently included within a governors meeting.
