Why conduct quality reviews

  • Assess the quality of instruction being provided by teachers
  • Measure the effectiveness and impact of organizational structures on schools’ provision
  • Obtain an objective view of schools’ provision and capacity to improve
  • Identify and verify additional resources required to hit school improvement goals
  • Satisfy the monitoring requirements for state and federal grant programs
  • Identify action planning priorities
  • Improve the quality of teaching
  • Embed sustainable best practice to build on internal capability/capacity

How our quality reviews work

Class Measures’ Quality Reviews are data-driven, evidence-based and available as virtual or in-person exercises, depending on your school/district guidelines. They include a review of documents; interviews with school leaders; focus groups with teachers, parents and students; and classroom observations. Our reviews bring focus to your school improvement efforts and instil positivity in staff through our collaborative approach.

Our reviews explore and make recommendations on many school aspects, including:

  • Quality of teaching and learning
  • Instructional practices, structures and programs
  • Distribution of resources
  • Culture for learning
  • Partnerships with families and local community
  • Leadership and governance
  • Organizational and financial capacity

St Cloud Area District School

"What we really appreciate about Class Measures is that their programs are very intensive, but don't evaluate the people; looking at processes and student outcomes instead. I truly believe in the Class Measures' reviews because they get to the heart and soul of the school and are well received by teachers and administrators. This is because they are never negative; conversations may be hard but never feel punitive."
