Do you think perhaps it is the ‘formal’ bit that causes issues as it indicates a judgmental approach to monitor/assess and for all the reasons already listed it becomes a ‘performance’ based activity rather than an accurate representation of the norm? I am a huge advocate of visiting classrooms; team teaching and active collaboration – the sharing ethos is one of support and sharing ideas rather than ‘control’.
