Educational Improvements Resulting From School Self-Evaluations as Reported by Selected Principals in Texas.
Holliman, Billy C.
The degree of improvement which occurred in overall educational programs as a result of school self-evaluation was examined using an instrument based on the 1960 edition of "Evaluation Criteria," published by the National Study of Secondary School Evaluation. The study was limited to the responses of principals of the secondary schools in Texas that conducted school self-studies during the period 1964-1968. The questionnaire was in three parts, with 8 questions devoted to background information (used to qualify each questionnaire for inclusion in the study); 8 general information questions; and finally, 59 questions probing the degree of improvement, on a five-point scale, in specific areas. The collective responses to all 75 questions are discussed and a master rank-order chart of the mean degrees of improvement is provided. The conclusions and recommendations are fully enumerated. An extensive review of the related literature precedes the main body of the report. An extensive bibliography follows each chapter and a copy of the questionnaire is included in the appendix. (PR)
