Evidence based practice underpins everything we do in education and is coming through all kinds of research throughout NZ including BES.

Milestone samples
The rationale for sharing these examples:
Clearly shows links between
• What were the planned outcomes directly linked to programme outcomes
• Evidence for any shifts and how have students benefited
• Key learning for the school/cluster
• Explanation of support mechanisms
• Examples of evidence such as quotes, links, documentation, learning stories, survey data.
• Written in objective, non-personalised manner
Areas for improvement on these reports:
  • More streamlined approach needed, less writing.
  • More analysed collation of school responses - summarised findings
  • Avoid duplicating material
  • Less writing, less writing, less writing
  • 10-12 page
