Maximizing Achievement in Science:

Working together to raise standards


Targets so what
Targets. So what!

Evidence from research gives clear information on the

factors which make schools and classrooms effective in promoting

student achievement. These factors include:

• a shared vision and aims;

• high expectations of what each student can achieve;

• concentration on learning and teaching;

• monitoring of individual student progress.
