Nursery Schools and Kindergarten Self-evaluation processes: the role of basic methodological training for teachers and managers
In recent years we have witnessed the development of internal evaluation (Self-evaluation in the first place) and external evaluation of school structures of the 0-6 level. In 2016/17 a Research-Training project was promoted on the theme of self-evaluation of the Nursery and Kindergartens of the Municipality of Rome, which involved 36 Heads of educational services and 93 educational
facilities. We describe here the activities of the training and research path carried out by the participants in blended mode and the results obtained. The evaluation model adopted considers self-evaluation activities as an interaction between the indications of the legislator (top-down) and the territorial needs (bottom-up), also taking into account the perception of the professional identity
and the effectiveness of the school organization.
