School in a Mirror

The IQAA guideline instrument for internal evaluation of schools is entitled School in a Mirror.

The guideline outlines the process in detail, presents the quality targets for teaching and learning, as well as for the management of the school and provides various exemplars and templates to guide evaluation and report writing. 

The School in a Mirror is only available to IQAA member schools and can be found in the section, IQAA Members. All of School in a Mirror, including the opinion surveys, add-on opinion surveys, classroom visit forms and all other exemplars and documents issued by IQAA, is subject to copyright.
