Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
Evaluation findings concerning six Austin Independent School District (AISD) Assessment Centers are presented. The report describes the AISD assessment center, summarizes the evaluation findings, and provides conclusions and recommendations. The AISD assessment center is one of seven components which make up the District's Administrative Leadership program. The other components are early identification, recruitment, screening, development, selection and placement, and evaluation. Issues addressed in this interim report include: size of pool of unassessed applicants, ethnicity of assessment center participants, new appointments and promotions among assessment center participants available in the administrative candidate bank, and the relationship between assessment center scores and administrator perceiver scores. Results indicated the size of the pool of unassessed applicants continued to grow. The ethnic distribution of participants was in agreement with the goals of the Faculty/Staff Recruitment Plan. Assessment center participants' success rate was high. More high scoring candidates were appointed, or promoted, than low scoring. A few low scoring assessment center participants were appointed, or promoted, to new administrative positions. A low correlation was found between assessment center scores and administrator perceiver scores. (DWH)
