Abstract

Presently, schools are evaluated in many States of the Federal Republic of Germany externally and are in addition demanded to evaluate themselves internally. Support of third parties is offered to them. In this contribution forms of evaluation and a demarcation to monitoring as well as the relation to school inspection are shown. The possible function of evaluation within the scope of governance is explained. After evaluation standards have been named from two different perspectives, finally some examples are given for the practice of evaluation.
