This review summarizes international empirical studies on criteria for school effectiveness between 1995-2004. The data comes from a special study on this topic for the Dutch school inspectorate and has been re-analyzed for this contribution. In the first section of the paper, effectiveness criteria are reviewed with regard to their role in theoretical models of school effectiveness research. In the second section, empirical studies concerned with school and classroom effectiveness are reviewed with a focus on the effectiveness criteria, which are applied. The results show that the range of criteria is small. Especially regarding school effectiveness there is a tendency towards using pupils' achievement in school subjects as effectiveness criteria. School factors were mainly investigated using national or regional survey data. The third section of the paper deals with perspectives for future research on school effectiveness, suggesting a broader set of effectiveness criteria.
