Rural Outcomes of Schooling Research Project report
|Educational Measurement and School Accountability Directorate, NSW Department of Education
The aim of the research was to identify the strategies employed by rural schools that were performing well on state-wide tests relative to a measure of their remoteness combined with socio-economic status and how these strategies were implemented or maintained. The major method used was case studies in 14 rural schools. The Rural Outcomes of Schooling Research Project found that whole school strategies and programs provided a foundation on which a culture of success could be built.
