Article
Full-text available
Across Europe schools and other service providers increasingly operate in networks to provide inclusive education or develop and implement more localized school-to-school improvement models. As some education systems move towards more decentralized decision-making where multiple actors have an active role in steering and governing schools, the task...
Article
Many education systems are developing towards more lateral structures where schools collaborate in networks to improve and provide (inclusive) education. These structures call for bottom-up models of network evaluation and accountability instead of the current hierarchical arrangements where single schools are evaluated by a central agency. This pa...

Inleiding Als onderwijskundige heb je het soms lastig in deze wereld omdat iedereen verstand heeft van onderwijs. Wij hebben allemaal op school gezeten en hebben vaak ook nog schoolgaande kinderen. Daarom heeft ook iedereen opvattingen en theorieën over het onderwijs: over goede en slechte scholen, goede en slechte leraren, hoe je het beste kunt le...
Article
Full-text available
We examined the effect of two interventions on both the reliability and validity of regulatory judgments: adjusting the regulatory instrument and attending a consensus meeting. We adjusted the regulatory instrument. With a randomized controlled trial (RCT) we examined the effect of the adjustments we made to the instrument. In the consensus meeting...
Article
Objectives: In the scientific literature about reliability, the main approach to increasing reliability seems to involve increasing the number of observers and improving the instrument used. Other aspects for improving reliability - like the training of raters - seem to receive less notice. It is worth asking whether this technical approach could...
Article
Objectives Reliable and valid judgments are necessary for regulatory authorities to merit confidence from care institutions and society and preserve authority. Moreover, limited reliability and validity of regulatory judgments increase the risk of limited improvement of the quality of health care. The goal of the study is to obtain insight in (dis)...
Article
Full-text available
Since the mid 1990s, schools are on the website of the Netherlands' Education Inspectorate. The information pertains to the overall performance of schools. The most important objective of making school performance public is to enable third parties to inform themselves about the quality of the education a Dutch school provides. This article gives an...

In dit onderzoek hebben we de nauwkeurigheid van oordelen van inspecteurs van de Inspectie voor de Gezondheidszorg (IGZ) onderzocht. Het gaat om oordelen over vier criteria van verantwoorde zorg die gegeven zijn in toezichtsbezoeken in verpleeghuizen in 2005/2006. Deze bezoeken vonden plaats in het kader van het Gefaseerd Toezicht (GT). We hebben d...
Article
This article demonstrates the value of theoretical ex-ante evaluation of policy programs. We show how a specific policy might not achieve its objectives and illustrate the elements of the policy, which need improvement. These conclusions are based on a reconstruction and evaluation of the theory behind a policy program that aims to increase product...
Article
This article presents the results of an exploratory study into the effects of School Self-Evaluation (SSE) used by eight Education Inspectorates in seven European countries. This study reveals that in the countries where SSE is strongly incorporated into the school inspection system, there is a rather substantial degree of steering by the Inspector...
Article
Tabl. Abstract. Bibl. This paper presents an overview of studies into effects and side effects of control mechanisms in education. We focus on effects and side effects of inspection visits and public performance indicators. A first conclusion is that the studies do not provide us with a clear answer to the question of whether inspections have posit...

We focus on effects and side effects of inspection visits and public performance indicators. A first conclusion is that the studies do not provide us with a clear answer to the question of whether inspection visits have positive causal effec...

1. INLEIDING Het overheidstoezicht voert inspecties uit en verzamelt hierbij informatie over de vraag of een handeling of zaak voldoet aan de daaraan gestelde wettelijke eisen, vormt zich hierover een oordeel en intervenieert als niet aan de wettelijke eisen is voldaan (Janssens, 2005). Wat de politiek, het beleid, de maatschappij en ook de inspect...
Article
Twente en Inspectie van het Onderwijs 1 Inleiding De Kwaliteitsagenda PO richt zich in het bijzonder op de verbetering van de reken-en taalprestaties van leerlingen in het primair onderwijs. Aangenomen wordt dat de toetspraktijk, 'data-driven teaching' en het beter gebruik maken van toetsgegevens door leraren, een belangrijke succesfactor kan zijn...
