Administrative Style and Performance as Teachers See Them.
Ellman, Neil
To succeed, certain cautions must be observed for the practice of client-centered evaluation of administrators by teachers. First, it should not become contractually obligatory; second, at least part of the evaluation should be directed at the administrative team (at the building level) as a whole; and third, it should be used solely for the improvement of administrative performance, not to provide data for an administrator's personnel file. A program of this kind should go through nine steps: (1) agreement that the team wants feedback about its style and performance, (2) decision as to what information is desired and needed to improve performance, (3) choice and development of a feedback instrument, (4) field test of instrument, (5) communication of the purpose and form of the process to the faculty, (6) administration of the instrument, (7) tabulation and interpretation of the data, (8) cooperative use of the data to improve performance, and (9) evaluation of the total process.
