As you may have heard, Ofsted have produced a new evaluation schedule.

If you are dueto be Ofstedded, you MUST be aware of it.

The schedule itself is available here.

The new evaluation contains some desperately worrying concepts, which I won't address here.

For my own staff, I have take the inspectors' assessment descriptors for:
1. The quality of learning (pages 12-14)
2. Pupils behaviour (pages 19-20) and
3. The quality of teaching (pages 31-32)
(ie key aspects that inspectors will be looking at in a lesson observation)
and I have analysed them into a grid which gives what you have to achieve to gain a verdict of outstanding, good, satisfactory or inadequate in each of the contributory elements of each area of judgement.

The different contributory elements which the inspectors appear to be assessing are:
1. Quality of Learning:
a. Learning
b. Attitudes and application
c. Progress
2. Behaviour:
3. Quality of teaching:

a. Effectiveness
b. Subject knowledge
c. Use of Resources
d. Use of Support
e. Planning
f. Assessment

The grid provides a tool that individual teachers can use to reflect on what is going on in their own lessons, prior to the inspectors coming in to observe them.
Used formatively and sympathetically, it could form the basis of some very positive peer- or line-assessment CPD work.

If you hate this kind of thing, then please don't look at it and get angry - just ignore it.

I have, however, made it available here for anyone who might find it useful to use in any way they like.
The first two sheets take the words from the Ofsted Schedule and split them up appropriately into the grid.
In the latter two sheets I have deleted all the extraneous words/phrases to give a summary sheet of the key performance indicators. One way to get someone to observe your lesson would be to ask them, for each column, to circle the indicator-phrase which they observed in that lesson.


Note that this grid now replaces the grid that I posted to the forum in this thread.

How very sloppy of me - I usually check links.
:(
Fixed now.
Sorry.
