Self study indicators
Before subject departments begin to assess themselves against the Standards and Practices in sections C1-C4 of the programme evaluation guide and self-study questionnaire the indicators need to be created and agreed upon so that the grades can be standardised across the whole programme. For this part of the process Mr Andrew Brown, the DP Coordinator at AICJ Hiroshima who had previously been through the evaluation kindly shared the indicators that he used in his school. I emailed the indicators to the teachers at my school and asked them to suggest any possible changes that might need to be made, to fit in with our school`s culture and context. After receiving ideas we discussed them in a staff meeting, resulting in the final indicators for our school, as shown below. This process allowed all teachers to discuss the indicators and to ask any questions regarding them.
