Appraising and Improving the Performance of School Administrative Personnel.
Castetter, William B.; Heisler, Richard S.
This monograph deals with the appraisal and improvement of school administrative personnel performance. It attempts to help the reader understand what performance appraisal is, why it is essential in school organization administration, how an appraisal system functions, and how it can be made to work more effectively. In order to achieve these aims, the report integrates new concepts of performance appraisal from various streams of administrative thought with well established knowledge about administrative processes such as planning, organizing, leading and controlling. Observations from the behavioral sciences as well as from industrial management have been linked to those in educational administration and presented in the form of utilitarian propositions with the expectation that they will be of benefit to the practitioner.
