What is the Reflective Analysis?

 
The Reflective Analysis is the heart of the Portfolio Initiative.

If the Portfolio Initiative is a case study in school leadership, then the Reflective Analysis is the report of that case study.

The Reflective Analysis is a sustained piece of writing in which the principal:
  • describes how they identified the need or opportunity in their school based on analysis of data, established an action plan drawing from relevant contemporary research, implemented the plan and monitored its progress, making adjustments as necessary on the basis of the monitoring data
  • analyses the outcomes
  • evaluates the implementation and impact
  • reflects on implications for future planning and for their own leadership.
