PISA-Based Test for Schools
Your report - using the report for school improvement
Using the report in a network or federation
If your school has participated in PISA-Based Test for Schools as part of a network or federation of schools, you may already have decided to share your results with your partner schools. In that case, the ideas given for using the report within your school will still apply but can be supplemented by conversations about similarities and differences in outcomes across the network/federation, possible reasons for these, and potentially useful strategies for improvement. The background research findings given in your report(s) will also inform your discussions and might provide additional starting points for further exploring areas of interest.
If your school is part of a network/federation but your partner schools have not participated in PISA-Based Test for Schools, you might still consider sharing your results and seeking reflections from your partners. They might have insights that vary from your own, which could prompt further useful development points, or further avenues for consideration, that might ultimately help to strengthen your school’s performance.
You might also like to consider sharing your report (or elements of it) with key stakeholders (such as your local authority/education board or academy provider/other provider, governing body/governing board/trustees, parents, and students), perhaps to demonstrate success or to explain proposed changes.
