Handbook for Improving Superintendent Performance Evaluation.
Candoli, Carl; And Others
This handbook for superintendent performance evaluation contains information for boards of education as they institute or improve their evaluation system. The handbook answers questions involved in operationalizing, implementing, and evaluating a superintendent-evaluation system. The information was developed from research on superintendent performance evaluation conducted during 1993-95. Part 1, "Foundations of Superintendent Performance Evaluation," lays out the principles and theory of fair and sound evaluation. It also includes lists of context variables, general superintendent duties, and possible evaluation tools and techniques. Part 2, "Conducting the Evaluation," outlines and explains the suggested tasks involved in a thorough performance evaluation. The third part,"Scheduling, Maintaining, and Monitoring the System," addresses more technical questions related to the timing, control, development, and assessment of the evaluation process. Three figures are included. Appendices contain a description of each of the personnel-evaluation standards and an expanded list of the superintendent duties presented in part 3. (LMI)
