The most common ones I have seen are accountability and support. When schools are on an improvement process the includes whole school programs, there is the need to reduce variability between classrooms, therefore the need to get into classrooms to see what is happening and providing the support for teachers to make the required changes to be aligned to new programs or approaches. I have also seen classroom walkthroughs used in instructional rounds and teacher development schools, where the focus is on the professional learning opportunities for those teachers observing the classroom practice, rather than the teachers in the classroom being observed.
