The Teaching, School, and Leadership Practices survey is a self-review tool for principals to gather useful information about three key aspects of practice and leadership that underpin effective teaching and learning, in the current New Zealand context.
The survey items are from robust research and are consistent with the Dimensions of Effective Pedagogy in the NZC, the Standards for the Teaching Profession, the Educational Leadership Capability Framework, and ERO’s School Evaluation Indicators. We have recently released a research report which looked at how ten principals were using the tool and what they found it particularly useful for.
The tool is free, quick, and confidential
The tool is open in Term 2 and 3. The teacher’s survey will take 15 to 20 minutes and the principal’s survey will take approximately 10 – 15 minutes to complete. Both teachers and principals complete the School and Leadership Practices section and principals have immediate access to reporting in two formats:
- The combined responses from all the teachers
- The combined responses from all the teachers, with the principal’s own response shown separately
