Use our pre- and post-QTR surveys to evaluate the impact of Quality Teaching Rounds in your school.
We believe in supporting teachers and school leaders as best we can in the planning, implementation and evaluation of Quality Teaching Rounds.
Planning and implementation
Implementing QTR in your school can produce significant benefits for students, staff and the wider school community.
It’s important that the key features of QTR are adhered to in order to ensure maximum impact. Key features and planning and implementation strategies are provided in detail during the two-day Quality Teaching Rounds Foundational Workshop, or alternatively we can provide tailored advice and support for your school.
Evaluating the impact Quality Teaching Rounds is having in your school is an important part of the process. We can offer tailored support including comprehensive pedagogical audits, assessment audits, fidelity checks, and qualitative analysis, which can assist in setting goals and identify professional learning needs.
We also offer a number of tools to help you do your own evaluation.
Here are two of our most popular resources:
These surveys can provide great insights into how both students and teachers believe Quality Teaching Rounds has improved teaching and learning. They can be implemented once during the year (e.g. Term 2 annually) or at two or more timepoints in order to track change within that school year (e.g. Term 1 and Term 3).
