How can we understand learner progress in special schools?

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract / Description of output

This report summarises findings from a small study recently undertaken in Edinburgh special schools. The aim of the study was to provide external scrutiny on progress towards improvements in performance and to assist the development of future strategy in this area. It examined the development and implementation of a new standardised framework for improvement. The findings indicate that this development has been timely, well focused and highly successful. The introduction of this standardised framework across the special school sector represents a radical approach and leads the way for Scotland in terms of responding to the need to provide an overview of learner progress in this sector.
