Self-assessment tool on inclusion in and around schools

Welcome to the European Toolkit for Schools! We have designed a self-assessment tool to help you reflect on the inclusion policies and practices that are implemented in your school, and provide you with suggestions for further improvement.

The self-evaluation is divided into seven areas. Each area includes a number of questions/indicators. Based on your answers, you will get a personalised report with the areas where your school already seems to be working well to prevent early school leaving and promote inclusion, and others in which there is more room for development.

The questions are based on the NESET (Network of Experts working on the Social Dimension of Education and Training) analytical report Structural Indicators for inclusive systems in and around schools, with an emphasis on early school leaving prevention. Your self-assessment results will be accompanied by suggested resources from the European Toolkit for Schools and links to relevant chapters of the NESET report.

We made the tool with primary and secondary schools in mind. While those working in Early Childhood Education and Care settings are welcome to use the tool, some of the questions may not be appropriate to this context, and therefore some of the results may not be as useful.

Getting started

To get started with the self-assessment, have a look at the following points:

  • You need to log in to use the self-assessment tool. If you do not have an account, you can create one via the Register button at the top of this page.
  • The language of this page and the questionnaire can be changed via the drop-down menu at the top of this page.
  • You can use the tool as many times as you want. You can also save your progress as a draft and resume and submit it later.
  • To get the evaluation report, you need to respond to all the questions. It should take you less than 30 minutes.

About your privacy

Responses to the questions are stored securely. Your name and organisation will only be included in your personal report and will not be shared with third parties. Data (your responses) are collected to generate your personal report, allowing you to compare your responses with the average responses of others who have used the self-assessment tool. They are also used for a) improving the self-assessment tool and b) contributing to general impressions of the development of inclusive education across the EU (e.g. by looking at average responses over time).
