Key Driver: Performance information
Gathering and monitoring information with regards the drivers for improvement, and the outcomes for which we are aiming to have a positive impact on, help to provide a full picture of how well Scottish education is performing and whether it is improving.
This evidence report aims to provide an overview of what we know about Scottish education and the context in which our children and young people learn. It brings together available current evidence not only on children's outcomes but on the drivers for improvement. It also aims to present an objective picture of Scottish education, based on a wide range of sources, with a particular focus on the differences in outcomes for children living in the most deprived and least deprived areas.
Such evidence is crucial to be able to learn from good practice and develop plans for improvement where needed.
