Self-Evaluation Instrument for Instructional Supervisors.
Canizaro, Beth C.
The skills, understandings, and attitudes necessary for an effective instructional supervisor were identified in the literature (using, for the most part, those materials written since 1975). Twenty-six elements were identified and clustered into six areas for a self-evaluation instrument that can give supervisors a means to describe and analyze their work in instructional supervision. The supervisor or principal selects, on a 5-point scale, responses to describe personal behavior on each of the 26 elements of instructional supervision. On the analysis sheet the instructional supervisor identifies weak areas and writes a plan with specific steps to take in order to improve those areas. The outline of elements of the supervisory process names each of the items on the self-evaluation form and lists suggested resources for that item. A supervisor evaluation form and suggestions for its use are included to obtain feedback from the supervisees. The self-evaluation instrument can be used as the basis for a program for training supervisors as well as a means of support and self-assessment during their first year in a supervisory position. It can also be used in the planning of staff development programs for principals and supervisors. A bibliography listing 105 resources is appended. (MLF)
