The study refined the Lesson Study methods in terms of the evaluation of the contexts, processes and outcomes of the Lesson Studies undertaken over two phases. The findings suggest beneficial outcomes for pupils and teachers while outcomes for schools remain more complex. The study shows that various contextual factors are critical if Lesson Study is going to become a sustained commitment in schools.
