This paper examines managerial and associated aspects of monitoring pupil progress in United Arab Emirate state schools, based on an empirical study carried out over five years in the Dubai Educational Zone. Such monitoring has been recognised as of importance to school effectiveness and improvement. It is of special concern in the Gulf because of the prevalence of underachievement and drop‐out there. The Ministry requires only raw data of test and examination performance. Gathering this consumes much time and energy but contributes little to student learning. Data concerning “at‐risk” students are not shared. Recommendations are made. Study of this aspect of schooling allows the opportunity to examine other significant managerial aspects of UAE schools.
