ICT PD Cluster Self-Assessment Rubric

The ICT PD Cluster Self-Assessment Rubric has been developed by the National Support Services Team in collaboration with cluster
facilitators, school leaders and others within the ICT PD community. The BECTA ICT self-review framework material has provided
reference documents. The rubric is a tool for school self assessment and development. It is in a development and review phase and
all feedback from users is appreciated.

The purpose of the rubric is to provide collective guidelines for cluster schools to self assess and review their progress within the
context of the ICT PD programme. It is not mandatory to use the rubric. It is envisaged that the rubric will assist in on-going
reflection and review, for example, before writing milestone reports or in planning ahead for contract variation. It is devised as an
aide or additional tool for those interested in using in conjunction with their own reflective and data gathering practice

Terminology is always open to interpretation. In the context of the rubric, it would benefit the users to discuss the terminology to
create common understandings.

Process for completion

The rubric is designed to be used by each individual school within an ICT PD cluster. The NSSF team recommends completing this
with input from staff where possible and practicable. The cluster level questions are included, so that school leaders can give their
perspective on the impact of work carried out at cluster level, to support the work within their school.

Choose the best fit for your school in relation to the level descriptors. If working on an electronic copy of the rubric, go to Format 
Borders and Shading and chose a colour to shade to the level that best fits your school.

Clusters may like to share results with their national facilitator as part of discussions during face to face or audio conference visits as
the basis for identifying any support needs or ways that clusters can contribute to the wider ICT PD community.

We invite cluster leaders to provide feedback to their National Support Services Facilitator about whether the tool is useful and ways
in which it can be further developed and improved.
