Evaluation of the project

Annamari Ylonen (Evaluation Officer)


Aims of evaluation

Aims of evaluation

  • Evaluation will focus on assessing these project aims:

    • Aim to enhance the achievement of pupils identified with MLD at KS3 (academic, cognitive, motivational and well-being aspects)

    • Aim to enhance the professional development of participating teachers

    • Aim to enhance curriculum and pedagogic development and self-development capacity in participating classes and schools

  • A separate, but interlinked aim is to:

    • Evaluate the usefulness of the MLD category

Identification of pupils with MLD:

- Recorded in annual census last January; using the Government descriptor of MLD

- Pupils at School Action Plus or with Statements, where MLD was main area of SEN


Pupil level evaluation

Pupil level evaluation

  • All case pupils will be assessed twice during Phase 1 and once after Phase 1 (baseline assessment and assessment after intervention):

  • British Ability Scales – verbal/non-verbal cognitive ability (matrices, word similarities, reading, spelling test)

  • MALS (Myself-as-Learner-Scale) – self-concept as a learner

  • Resiliency scales – coping in adversity. Personal attributes to assess e.g. optimism, adaptability, sense of trust and comfort with others

  • Attitudes to class and school survey

  • In addition:

  • Attainment assessment by teachers

  • Pupil behaviour in class survey filled in by teachers

  • Pupil interviews by the evaluation team

Teacher level evaluation

  • Focus on evaluating the impact of Lesson Study on participating teachers (e.g. opinions of teachers about LS and how it affects teaching & learning; professional development)

  • Focus on the impact of LS on pupils as assessed by teachers

  • How?

  • Continuous assessment by teachers themselves throughout the project (e.g. records, notes, video recordings)

  • Assessment by the evaluation staff by using surveys (e.g. an online survey tool, Survey-Monkey) and interviews

  • Assessment after LS has been introduced – focus on changes

Class/School level evaluation

  • Impact of Lesson Study on participating classes:

    • Teaching, classroom practices – impact on class cohesion, class dynamics, pupil-pupil relationships, teacher-pupil relationships, inclusion, behaviour...

  • Impact of Lesson Study on participating schools:

    • Organisation of SEN, general atmosphere, ethos, work ethic, changes, e.g. a shift into a more ‘inclusive school’?

  • How?

  • Assessment by teachers themselves throughout the project (e.g. as part of the Lesson Study method)

  • Assessment by the evaluation staff by using surveys and interviews

  • Observations by the evaluation team of classes and LS teams

  • Assessmentafter intervention – focus on changes


In conclusion

In conclusion

  • The evaluation of the Lesson Study and MLD project will be ongoing for the duration of the project

  • Evaluation is an important part of the project as it aims to assess whether the overall project aims have been met

  • Outcomes of evaluation will be used to:

    • Raise awareness about MLD and its definition and use (e.g. as a SEN category, needs of pupils, impact on pupils/teachers/schools)

    • Raise awareness of the Lesson Study Methodology both nationally and internationally
