What are we investigating?

Why do pupils in some schools learn more than those in others?

  • What role does school improvement capacity play?
  • What role do the education policy standards play? Is school improvement capacity influenced by the varying governance systems in individual cantons?

What do school administrators, teachers and specialists do in their daily school routines to help develop an effective atmosphere for their pupils?

  • Which factors differentiate schools with a high improvement capacity from those with a low improvement capacity?

How can schools and teachers be supported in optimally fostering their pupils’ capabilities?
