Tools to support self-evaluation

There are many approaches to self-evaluation and a number of tools that will help support the process.

Some tools allow you to engage in a more critically reflective evaluation and others simply offer a quick ‘temperature check’ which are useful but do not provide that opportunity to dig deeper which is required.

Reflective Questions
These reflective questions provide areas for reflection and focus. They are not an exhaustive list but are very useful starting points.
Self-evaluation wheels
The self-evaluation wheels are useful coaching tools to support the self-evaluation process.
Professional Learning Planning Cycle
The Professional Learning planning wheel outlines useful questions at key stages of the professional learning process.
National Model of Professional Learning
As you engage in self-evaluation you will be thinking about the professional learning you have done and the future learning that may be useful for you.
Professional Values
The professional values – social justice, integrity, trust and respect and a professional commitment – are at the core of the Professional Standards.
Learning for Sustainability
Learning for Sustainability is an integral part of the Professional Standards.
Professional Standards Comparison Tool
