A Self-Assessment Tool: A Coherent Approach to High School Improvement

This online self-assessment tool is a starting point for identifying high school improvement priorities and enables users in schools and districts to a) identify the strengths and weaknesses of their current high school reform efforts, and b) align and build on these current and planned reform initiatives to develop a comprehensive high school improvement plan that will result in rigorous and high-quality teaching and learning for all students. Based on the National High School Center’s Eight Elements of High School Improvement, users can respond to a variety of questions that focus on the eight elements and the different indicators of effectiveness, and generate reports based on their responses.
