overview of the process  

This overview of the evaluation process takes staff through the four main stages of the self-study process, school visit, report from the IBO and refinement of the action plan.

I gave staff the document in a meeting which was taken from the IBO`s Programme evaluation guide and self-study questionnaire. This meeting provides a good chance for teachers who have been through the process before to talk about their experiences in each parts of the process. I made it clear to staff that the part of the process that would take the most time and would include most of the staff involvement would be the undertaking of the self- study process.
