A Diagnostic Assessment System for Professional Supervisory Competencies. Document Number 11.
Evans, Michael C.; Harris, Ben M.
Described is the diagnostic assessment system for professional supervisory competencies developed by the Special Education Supervisor Training Project at the University of Texas at Austin. An introductory section reviews such aspects as the competency-guided training model and the rationale for self-assessment. Five instruments are reviewed, and provisions for performance estimation and multiple assessors are considered in the section on data collection. Detailed are procedures for analyzing competencies in three stages: estimation of competence levels, determination of critical competency priorities, and diagnosis of specific knowledge or skill deficiencies needing development. Potential uses of assessment outcomes are seen to include skill in systematic data analysis, rational prioritizing, and examining self-perceptions. Considered in a final section are factors involved in administering the competency assessment in preservice and inservice programs. Seven appendixes include a sample orientation session agenda and an outline of events for competency analysis sessions. (CL)
