In many countries deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) students have, on average, consistently been found to fall behind their hearing peers on school achievement tests. Interestingly, there are also considerable individual differences in DHH students’ school achievements that cannot be attributed to child and family characteristics such as intelligence and social economic status (Stinson & Kluwin, 2011). Stinson and Kluwin (2011) speculated that the quality of instruction is one of the variables that has not been sufficiently taken into account to explain the differences in DHH students’ school achievements. This very broad concept of quality of instruction is described in this chapter, and a review of the existing literature on the quality of instruction for DHH and hearing students is provided. Furthermore, three recent studies on assessing and improving the quality of instruction for deaf students in special schools in the Netherlands will be described.
