School improvement, Data analysis


Over the past decade,Victorian government schools have become accustomed to the use of data as a means of evaluating school performance and identifying potential areas for improvement. In many instances however, the data has been relatively unsophisticated and the data has not been readily available to or useable by teachers, and students rarely had access to this information. The Victorian Education Department’s Accountability and Improvement framework, underpinned by a three year school charter, required schools to monitor, evaluate and report on performance data across a range of areas.
