So You Think You Want to Develop an Administrator Evaluation System. . .
Totusek, Patsy F.; Christner, C. A.
Interviews with school administrators; surveys of large school districts, local businesses and governmental agencies; and reviews of educational management literature by the Austin Independent School District (AISD) Office of Research and Evaluation indicated that a competency-based instrument for administrator evaluation was needed. This paper focuses on the development of the AISD Administrator Evaluation System, listing the activities that were conducted from September 1981 to February 1983 to complete the revision of the present evaluation system. Several instruments and evaluation procedures were developed as a result of the revision activities. The instruments include: (1) the Administrator Evaluation Form (Attachment A); (2) task descriptions for each major administrative position in the District; (3) a Personal Goal Form for goal development and goal assessment (Attachment B); (4) input forms for district personnel in commenting on an evaluatee's performance; (5) the Administrator Evaluation Schedule (Attachment C); and (6) the Administrative Personnel Evaluation Handbook which will provide details on required and recommended evaluation procedures, evaluation procedures for evaluatees in contractual difficulties, and a list of resources for professional development.
