Survey of School Administrator Preparation Programs, 1990.
A goal of the Colorado administrator survey is to provide Colorado institutions of higher education and the state board of education with information for the continued improvement of administrator education programs. Of 67 participants, 42 surveys were used. Respondents made assessments concerning major areas of their preparation programs. Major components were basic management, leadership, decision making, problem solving, human relations, personnel administration, curriculum and instruction assessment, and resource utilization. Components and subcomponents were rated on relevance to current position and adequacy of preparation. Well over 70 percent of the respondents indicated each component as relevant to their position. Over 80 percent rated 6 of the 29 components as adequate, including planning and accepting responsibility. Seven components received less than 60 percent adequate ratings, including recruiting, screening, and selecting competent staff members. A table and outline of results are included. The evaluation instrument is appended. (EJS)
