Popis This chapter presents the practice of peer review as related to self-evaluation processes in Czech schools. It begins with a description of changes that have occurred in self-evaluation of Czech schools during the last 15 years. This is followed by discussion of efforts to support peer review in the last hundred years and a description of how peer review was supported in the Road to Quality, a nation-wide project (2009–2012) that approached peer review as evaluation by teams from other schools. Experience from the project is presented along with research methods applied, such as questionnaire survey, semi-structured interview, document analysis, participated observation, inquiry and case study. The findings give evidence on (a) expectations of schools willing to carry out peer review; (b) evaluation activities and work with school data; (c) differences between peer review and action of Czech School Inspectorate; (d) willingness of schools to continue using peer review for further development. In conclusion, peer review in the Czech Republic is perceived as a potentially promising activity; in terms of practice, however, it is shown that it remains somewhat peripheral in the mainstream of Czech schools.
