Research and Publications
The Catholic Schools Standards Study conducted over two years (2015-2016) produced noteworthy findings confirming the success of the NSBECS. Results and analysis of both surveys demonstrated that users report the NSBECS to be a vital framework for assessing and improving Catholic school effectiveness, and generally calling Catholic schools to greater excellence. A preliminary report, issued Fall 2017, entitled The Catholic School Standards Study, summarized selected findings from the field. Making a Difference: The Promise of Catholic School Standards, Ozar L., Weitzel-O’Neill P., 2019 provides the full report and analysis, as well as discussion regarding the practical implications, scholarly significance and recommendations for moving forward. The good news: users experience success with the NSBECS as a catalyst for moving their organizations forward.
