    The Adolescent Success Middle Years School Improvement Diagnostic Tool is a self-audit tool used to gauge the effectiveness of middle years practices in your school, to recognise areas of strength and to target areas for improvement. Upon completion of the audit, the tool enables teams to acknowledge key areas requiring action, to create an action plan and to be able to review and reflect upon progress of that action. 

    The Diagnostic Tool is compilation of effective middle schooling practices as outlined in the Adolescent Success Position Paper, which is based upon an analysis and synthesis of recent and current research and evidence. School leaders are encouraged to use the Diagnostic Tool to audit their own practices when considering middle schooling reforms and directions. 

    We provide TWO options:

    • Option ONE: School Diagnostic Tool and Facilitation (purchase C and D)
    • Option TWO: School Diagnostic Tool, Facilitation and Implementation Support (purchase E and F)

    For more information view our Diagnostic tool flyer (4).pdf.
