Recommendations for schools for implementing self-evaluation
Self-evaluation that has been developing into an important factor in education is best planned and organised as a learning process. Self-evaluation provides a way to improve the functioning of an organisation and to set priority areas for development, as well as providing a fundamental insight into all school activities. What is more, self-evaluation is a process aimed at improving training quality. Its purpose is to obtain information on the functioning of a school. This information serves as a basis for planning improvements to be made to the functioning of an institution and its personnel, while avoiding targeting scapegoats. As well, self-evaluation helps schools analyse their activities, and provides appropriate feedback concerning those areas that should be changed. It is, however, of utmost importance that schools plan and carry out measures based on their findings.
