Finally, the model could be used to establish areas of deficiency in the research as a whole. One common factor is that all of the research that has been conducted has looked at effectiveness in one of two ways, either from an outcome point of view or from a valueadded point of view. If we plot the key literature onto two dimensions of the model, namely, the range of possible school goals and the techniques that can be utilised to identify whether a school is effective or not, it is possible to establish which areas of these two dimensions have been considered by the research.
For this reason, much of the research has focused upon identifying characteristics associated with effective schools, in the hope that this knowledge will somehow help other schools to become more effective. However, the research thus far has not provided a great deal of detail in terms of establishing the complex interrelationships between the identified characteristics; yet it may be here that the heart of the matter lies. If the issue of school effectiveness could be reduced to having a finite number of characteristics present within the school, then it could be argued that all schools recognised as being effective must have those characteristics operating within them.
