Administrator Evaluation: A Look at Georgia and the Nation. Georgia Professional Standards Commission Issues for Education Series.
McDonald, Milton S.; And Others
The recommendations contained in this publication regarding the evaluation of administrators are based on research conducted by the Professional Standards Commission of the state of Georgia. The booklet explores administrator evaluation in Georgia and national trends and events, including state mandated programs. Discussed are the results of a survey to determine how school district administrators are evaluated. A second phase of the research, also discussed, is how principals regard their own evaluation. Responses from 64 percent from the 187 school districts in Georgia are represented in table form. In phase 2 of the study, 135 principals from 125 different school districts were interviewed, and data are categorized by size of the district and type of school administered. Principals surveyed said that the important keys to successful administrator evaluation are the competence of the person who evaluates and the validity of the instrument used. An extensive bibliography and sample evaluation forms are also included. (Author/LD)
