167) Quantifying events can complement qualitative observation, as Eisner illustrates with the case of four independent researchers observing a fortyfive-minute videotape of exemplary teaching, each coming up with new and different insights as they probed beneath the surface of the lesson. For example, one of the four focused not simply on the distribution of the teacher’s questions by gender but the nature of the teacher’s followup probing with boys and with girls. Examining probing in terms of its neutral or challenging nature and its positive or negative evaluation by the teacher, he found that, while positives and negatives were more or less evenly distributed by gender, follow-up challenges only ever occurred with the boys.

Despite the importance of external objective evaluation, we also have to avoid the danger of what I might call inspection dependency, that is, the assumption that continuous improvement can only be brought about by the ‘threat’ of inspection. There has to be a strong will to effect improvement on the basis of professional selfevaluation. There are clear dangers of self-evaluation becoming confused with self-delusion, but with a shared and open agenda for improvement, and the moderation of self-evaluation by external commentary, this can be avoided.

The first of these refers to the balance between what is given to external evaluators and what they give back to the school. The second dimension refers to the transparency of ‘evaluability’ on both sides. So, for example, is the inspection team as open as they ask the school to be? Are they equally prepared to be evaluated and reported on publicly? Leeuw goes on to suggest nine ‘assumptions’ that flow from reciprocity: • • • • • • That when evaluators, or inspectors, take reciprocity into account the level of trust between evaluators and evaluands (those being evaluated) will increase.
