Evaluation of Administrators: Issues and Practices. OSSC Bulletin Vol. 19, No. 10.
Wills, Lewis A.
In this review of current practices it is observed that administrators are evaluated for two major purposes--(1) to provide a basis for school districts' decisions at the conclusion of the evaluation period, and (2) to provide feedback on performance to allow administrator improvement. A comparison is made of evaluation material from five school districts and two published lists. Also included is a table from a study in the state of Washington that shows percent response to ten conditions considered important that either exist or are being initiated for the evaluation of educational administrators. The next section of the report reviews some of the current literature about the role of the evaluator, who is evaluated by whom, problems and suggestions for administrator evaluation programs, and techniques in administrator evaluation. The final section of the report contains nine samples of administrator evaluation instruments and an extensive bibliography. (MLF)
