• Practitioners training themselves in the Leuven Scales;
• Coaches, setting managers, lead practitioners, directors
Main advantages of scanning
• it is cost‐effective to obtain a view of the well‐being and involvement in several groups;
• it rates well‐being and involvement in the context where the practitioner is interacting with the group and;
• the reliability of the data can be monitored because an external person (from the staff, a coach or a researcher) performs the observations.
Research using the scanning technique
Scanning is used in the MeMoQ study (Early Childhood), Village-at-School (primary schools) and the project “Every child is happy in its own skin” (primary school), the Procrustes study (Secondary schools) and several intervention studies such as in Milton Keynes.
