Allocate Educational Resources Effectively

Goals set based on the Early Years Evaluation – Teacher Assessment (EYE-TA) typically refer to a reduction of vulnerability over the course of a school year or the attainment of a long-term target. Jurisdictions can use within-school interventions in the majority of schools, and potentially a whole-school interventions in a small set of ‘vulnerable’ schools; that is, those with a high prevalence of vulnerable children.

For example, a common goal is to increase the percentage of children who have strong pre-literacy skills when they enter grade 1. One way to do this is to use the EYE-100 Domain Strengthening Learning Activities  in all schools in a jurisdiction, as the activities are designed to strengthen the pre-literacy skills for all children.

A whole-school approach to goal setting would be to identify schools with at least 75% of its children who are vulnerable and to apply a whole-school intervention, such as Confident Learners.
