Program review tool

The program review tool is designed as a guide for program evaluation. It allows the reviewer to make notes on whether attributes are evident and if not, what action is needed for improvement.

A review of a program is best undertaken through a pair of fresh eyes, for example by another colleague, so that evidence of the program’s methodology and adherence to requirements are met.

Best practice in programming will inform the teacher of the learning content that is to be taught and how the learning addresses outcomes from the syllabus. A program should match the equipment and needs of the students in a class and the school’s specific context. A program may also link to general capabilities and other aspects of the syllabus.
