Abstract

This chapter describes how Inspectorates of Education operationalize different inspection goals (control, improvement, and liaison) in their inspection indicator frameworks. The chapter provides an overview and examples of the indicators used across a number of countries and how these are incorporated in inspection frameworks to evaluate and assess schools with the purpose of control, improvement and liaison. We elaborate on potential inspection frameworks to inspect and assess the processes and results of schooling (which includes making expert judgements and –value added- models to evaluate school output), and discuss their value and adequateness in the light of recent school effectiveness research. Evaluating the value and adequateness of inspection frameworks and measures is an important condition of valid inspections; a topic we will talk about in more detail in the Chap. 3.
