“It is a thorough evaluation of a school and we work really hard to ensure that we come out with a credible report card for the school,” says Jameela Al Muhairi, Chief of the Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau.
Transparency in evaluating schools is key to the idea behind every school visit. Inspectors gauge individual classroom dynamics based on the quality of teaching, learning, attainment and progress of a child through participation in classroom lectures. More than 60 per cent of the time spent by an inspector in the school is marked for attending lectures.
“We attend classroom lectures for over eight hours in a day and it’s all a part of inspecting the evidence provided by the school,” said one of the inspectors who was attending a lecture. (via Behind the scenes of a KHDA inspection)
