Pedagogy, its concept and Continuous School Improvement Plan (CSIP) are taken as the major elements for Quality Education in the areas of both management and academic follow-up of a school (herein Rural Development Academy Laboratory School & College). Pedagogy has been explored through the thinking and practice of those educators who look to accompany learners; care for and about them; and bring learning into life. Teaching is considered as just one aspect of their practice. This action research will demonstrate how assessment techniques can be used at the micro level to assess the pedagogical efficacy of individual classes and/or major subjects (such as Languages: Bangla, English, Mathematics, Social Studies,etc) as well as individual assignments for both the teachers and students along with the School Management Committee (SMC). It will discuss the results of a two-semester study of six consecutive years in which multiple cycles of assessment and corrective action will be taken to improve the quality of a class and out of class management exercises towards the whole school. Background of the action research has been worked out under a Kaizen (TQM) programme of JICA by organizing three courses, two workshops and series of meetings with selected 14 secondary schools of Bogra Sadar, Sherpur and Shajahanpur Upazilas of Bogra district. Rural Development Academy (RDA), Bogra and Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) will jointly share their part for sharpening some technicalities to develop and further implementation of the action research as they are in a collaborative relation for a long time.
