Focus on the Research and Theoretical Implications of Management Assessment, and, Assessment and Development Centres for Headteachers.
Lyons, Geoffrey
The theoretical implications of management assessment centers for evaluating headteachers in Great Britain are examined in this paper. Issues in developing informed, objective management assessment are discussed, which involve the following: the educational system's permeable boundaries; the context in which management assessment and development decisions have traditionally been made and delivered; the application of systematic job analysis to the headteacher position; and the benefits and limitations of current assessment and development center practice. Functions of headteacher appraisal are to: (1) identify the head's strengths and weaknesses; and (2) determine current management development requirements. The most effective way to conduct management appraisal is through job analysis and assessment and development center procedure, which takes a research and development approach. In addition, the application of middle range theories to educational management present considerable research opportunities. (Contains 23 references.) (LMI)
