Both the criteria which can be used to assess the effectiveness ofschools and the means by which effectiveness can be increased havereceived considerable attention during the last two decades. Thesecriteria have usually been shown to revolve around school climate,leadership, shared decision making, effective teaching, and parental andcommunity involvement. However, identification of universal criteria hasbeen criticised on grounds such as poor methodology, differences incontext and culture, assumptions of causality, and neglect of theinfluence of the external environment. Primary schools have goals andstyles of operation which contrast markedly with those of secondaryschools. Using approaches which differed from those commonly used ineffectiveness studies, two Alberta studies asked principalsheadteachers to identify items which were a critical for planningand b important for judging the overall effectiveness of primaryschools. Emphasis was placed on climate, high expectations for students,leadership, the morale and satisfaction of staff and students, effectiveteaching and student attitudes.
