Evaluating

Curriculum evaluation

Distinct from student assessment and teacher appraisal, curriculum evaluation measures the relevance and appropriateness of curriculum units of work and their delivery. Documentation that teachers use to plan units of work should also allow them to evaluate and improve them for the next delivery.

Each year, the school should also audit the total provision of curriculum to ensure it continues to be comprehensive and addresses any gaps. This includes identifying why gaps arose, so that future risks can be mitigated.

The following link leads to an example of a planned unit of work for a middle primary or elementary class, which includes the facility to evaluate its relevance.
