The importance of evidence

The diagram below captures the PL process and the place of evidence within it. When you engage in self evaluation and reflect on your practice, your professional learning (plans for or impact of), or your pupils' learning it should be informed by some form of evidence. The following questions are an important part of this process:
  • Why am I doing what I am doing?
  • How do I know this is important/ worthwhile?
  • What difference is it making?
  • How do I know?
