High effect & development

Efficacy is the ability to produce a desired or intended result. The questions to ask about efficacy and development are

  1. What is the intended result (standards)?

  2. How well is the school performing (data)?

  3. What will be improved (priority needs)?

  4. How will success be recognised  (measures)?

  5. How will improvement happen (action plans)?


A framework that transforms these questions into action can be accessed via the accompanying link.

Performance development tools

Schools have two efficacy aspects to consider; people and programs.

The efficacy of people is addressed in the 'Leading learning' page of this website.

The efficacy of programs is addressed via the following link.
