Benchmarking the 10 Indicators of Effectiveness. The High-Performing School. By: Mardale Dunsworth, Dawn Billings. Mardale Dunsworth and Dawn Billings are co-founders of a consulting company and have worked together at the Oregon and Washington departments of education, where they designed professional development for curriculum and instruction topics and provided services to low-performing schools.

A performance indicator or key performance indicator (KPI) is a type of performance measurement. KPIs evaluate the success of an organization or of a particular activity (such as projects, programs, products and other initiatives) in which it engages. Often success is simply the repeated, periodic achievement of some levels of operational goal (. zero defects, 10/10 customer satisfaction), and sometimes success is defined in terms of making progress toward strategic goals

The desire to improve student learning is universal, but the knowledge required to do so is not. The High-Performing School is a guide to a research-based improvement process that has been used successfully in schools of all grade levels, sizes, and demographics for almost a decade. The heart of the process is the on-site school review, a cooperative venture between an external review team and a school's administrators, teachers, and students. The team members spend several days at the school, during which time they learn about the state of the overall program by conducting interviews, administering surveys, observing classes, reviewing student work, and examining data reports and other documents. They then use the information they have gathered to evaluate the school's performance on 10 Effectiveness Indicators-descriptions of practices that research has shown to be in place in high-performing schools. Based on this evaluation, they present recommendations for specific steps the school can take to increase student learning and achievement.

Mardale Dunsworth and Dawn Billings, designers of this on-site school review process, summarize the research behind the 10 Effectiveness Indicators and provide the rubrics they have developed for assessing a school's performance on each one. They then give step-by-step instructions for a school review, which are addressed to both the school being reviewed and the team conducting the review. They also provide 60 tools that they have developed for planning and coordinating the review, collecting evidence for the evaluation, and communicating among the many parties involved in the effort to create a high-performing school.

I had previewed the book before and thought that it was ok, but when i bought it and started reading, it was then that i realized just how awesome the content was. I would recommend that every person concerned with improving educational opportunities, read this book.

The book is clear and easy to understand. I love that all information is backed up by research.

I am glad I purchased this. Just what my school needed!

This is the best book for school improvement I have ever read. They break down every unit of change to the school system level so that as a whole group, they can move forward. These authors are very committed to changing schools to be highly effective. Having spent time with them personally observing schools and progress monitoring schools in my complex area, I have seen tremendous growth among school staff and students. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

This book was exactly what I have been looking for. It gives specific advice - not generalities - based what is working in schools. For example instead of telling us to "use multiple measures," it tells us which ones are best for which purposes and how to tell when to use which one and how to do it. Instead of telling us to "make sure our discipline system keeps our school safe but also keeps kids in school," it lays out exactly how to do both at the same time. And instead of lecturing us about the need to "increase student engagement", it explains what to do - and what not to do.

This book gives us a brief look at the research on the most effective school practices, but more importantly (to me at least) it then provides scoring guides that illustrate what these practices look and feel like in schools that are highly effective, effective, not so effective.

Best of all it provided us with the tools we can use to compare what we are doing at our school with the research, so we could tell where we were starting from, where we needed to go, and how to get there.

Highly recommended!
