A review of Ofsted's test of the reliability of short inspections
(Ofsted) regulates, inspects and publishes openly detailed inspection reports of providers of services that care for children and young people, and provide education and vocational skills development for learners of all ages outside of higher education in England. Approximately 21,500 state-funded schools are subject to inspection by Ofsted. In March 2017 Ofsted published the results of its own research which set out to test if decisions and judgements were being made consistently by different inspectors during short inspections. This publication outlines the findings from a critique of Ofsted’s account of the implementation of the test and the interpretation of the results.
