American Association of School Administrators, Arlington, VA.; National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
The effective evaluation of superintendents can be of great use to both school boards and the superintendents themselves. This booklet on superintendent evaluation begins with an outline of the general development of evaluation methods from informal assessments to sophisticated, mutually conducted, written performance reviews. The uses of essay evaluations, graphic rating scales, forced choice ratings, work standards, performance standards, evaluation by objectives, and management by objectives are described. The requirements and benefits of a good evaluation program are discussed and ten steps in the development of such a program suggested, along with strategies for conducting the evaluations themselves. The document provides samples of the forms used in several popular evaluation processes. (PGD)
