The Development of Exemplary Performance Objectives and Their Attendant Evaluation Criteria for the Administrative Service Area of a School District. Final Report.
Forsythe, Ralph A.; Keegan, John J., Jr.
The procedures used in this study were designed to (1) identify the role of performance objectives in industry, (2) determine the importance of performance objectives at all levels of a school system, (3) identify the functions of the administrative service area of a school district, (4) construct the identified functions in terms of performance objectives and evaluation criteria, and (5) validate the constructed performance objectives and evaluation criteria. One hundred and nine tentative performance objectives and evaluation criteria were developed of which 97 objectives were validated. Twelve criteria, because they were attendant to the nonvalidated objectives, were not validated. Study findings resulted in two major recommendations: (1) school districts instituting a system of management by objectives or PPBS should examine the exemplary performance objectives and evaluation criteria found in this study and adapt them to fit their particular situation, and (2) the technique utilized to develop the exemplary objectives and criteria should be employed by those school districts seeking to develop performance objectives and evaluation criteria for those functions described as administrative service functions.
