Principals have two reasons to wonder about the whole concept of leadership. First, they are responsible for identifying leadership in others; and second, they must be analytical and reflective about their own capabilities. Consequently, there is always demand for valid and reliable measurement of leadership qualities. This issue reviews recent publications that address issues involved in measuring and evaluating leadership. The publications are: (1) "Measurements of Personality and Leadership: Some Relationships" (Frederick C. Wendel, Allan H. Schmidt, and James Loch); (2) "Assessing Leadership and Measuring Its Effects" (Richard L. Hughes, Robert C. Ginnett, and Gordon J. Curphy); (4) "Performance Appraisal and Selection of School Leaders: Selection Processes and Measurement Issues" (Kenneth Leithwood, Paul T. Begley, and J. Bradley Cousins); and (5) "Using Multi-Raters in Superintendent Evaluation" (Richard P. Santeusanio). (LMI)
