The Development of a Conceptual Model for Competency-Guided Instructional Leadership Preparation.
Gruber, Susan E.
This paper describes the Special Education Supervisor Training (SEST) project, an effort to develop a competencies-guided training program for special education supervisors who are considered instructional leaders and change agents. Three domains were identified for use in the leadership training program: problem-solving, human relations, and supervisor leadership job tasks. Specific competencies within the domain of supervisor job tasks were defined and then validated in a national survey of special education supervisors. The survey also sought to determine if there were regional differences in the perceived importance of the SEST competency statements. Based on the survey results, a conceptual model for the training program was designed, and a pilot test of the model was conducted with 12 students. Five procedures of competency assessment were identified and initiated by project staff; these procedures are currently being refined and further evaluated. Evaluation of the entire SEST project is also presently underway. (Author/JG)
