|Details||Ozawa et al. (2019) pointed out the importance of using Evaluative Thinking (ET) in school management. ET is necessary for student development and curriculum review and building and developing relationships with the local community embodying or validating municipal educational master plans. It is also essential for better school management, such as the reform of teachers' working environment.
On the other hand, COVID-19 has forced schools to respond quickly and systematically to new issues and expose potential problems in schools and move them to deal with them. School management based on ET is necessary to make appropriate decisions in such emergencies and verify the appropriateness and validity of those decisions.
However, it has not yet been sufficiently discussed how and under what circumstances ET is essential.
Therefore, this session discusses it from several perspectives and examines how to present evaluation results to facilitate the use of ET.
