Evaluating Principals. ERIC Digest Series Number 60.
Although principals are essential to their schools' effectiveness, they often receive only perfunctory evaluation. Themes from current literature on principal evaluation are highlighted in this digest; they include the reasons for principal evaluation, initial steps in designing evaluation systems, methods and sources of evaluation, and models of principal evaluation implemented in two school systems (North Carolina and Oregon). Common problems are also discussed; these include confusion about the purpose, formation, and application of evaluation criteria. (11 references) (LMI)
