This article presents case study research which explored the use of school performance feedback and its’ perceived effects.
The findings show that all schools used the feedback in writing school improvement plans. However, it was found that the extent of genuine school improvement varied across schools as did the perceived effects of the use of performance feedback.
The results highlight various factors which may promote or impede the use of school performance feedback and its effects.
