The first part of this report focuses on the factors impacting on learner performance in national tests at primary and secondary level. This was the central research question of this research.

The second section focuses on teacher and learner perceptions of their own responses to learning and the learning environment. This was centred on, but not confined to, their school.

The institutional structures record the level of development of the schools sampled here and investigate the use of two key technologies – interactive whiteboards and learning platforms
