The ultimate goal of any school improvement process is to enhance and facilitate better learning for students, including levels of achievement and wellbeing. For this reason, direct measures of student outcomes, and the collection and analysis of data, are essential to all school improvement efforts.

The National School Improvement Tool

The National School Improvement Tool (NSIT) provides a framework for gathering baseline data on school practices.

It is used by schools as a basis for self-assessment and also by trained, external reviewers to provide an independent perspective on how a school is performing.
