Resources for Administrator Assessment and Staff Development.
Duttweiler, Patricia Cloud; Hord, Shirley M.
A synthesis of literature on administrator assessment and staff development and a directory of resources are presented in this document. Section 1 discusses several aspects of administrator evaluation--the purposes of performance assessment; the components of evaluation; and the issues, processes, and recommendations for an effective evaluation system--and presents examples of several state and district evaluation systems. Examples of different types of evaluation instruments from several systems, specifically those of Georgia, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Tennessee, are also presented. The second section focuses on the components of effective staff development systems, offering guidelines and a checklist for planning and implementation. Innovative staff development strategies, such as principal centers and an international principal improvement project, are also described. Regional resources for administrator staff development are provided in the third section, which describes programs in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, and lists available SEDL workshops. The last section offers descriptions of 27 national programs and resources. (57 references) (LMI)
