Standards for Administrators.
Research Roundup, v15 n1 Fall 1998
This newsletter reviews five reports that address the implications of standards for administrators. These texts include "Designing and Implementing Standards-Based Accountability System" (Education Commission of the States), which describes some of the policy implications of standards-driven accountability; "Why Principals Fail: Are National Professional Standards Valid Measures of Principal Performance?" (J. Douglas Coutts), which reports on the relationship between standards and on-the-job success for principals; "Skills for Successful 21st Century School Leaders: Standards for Peak Performers" (J. R. Hoyle, F. W. English, and B. E. Steffy), which provides a professional-development curriculum based on a synthesis of recent leadership standards; "Case Studies for School Leaders: Implementing the ISLLC Standards" (W. L. Sharp, J. K. Walter, and H. M. Sharp), which offers a series of case studies keyed to the Interstate School Leadership Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) standards; and the Web site of the Council of Chief State School Officers, which offers the full text of the ISLLC report on performance standards for school leaders. Since ISLLC is a broadly based coalition, its standards represent a powerful and influential consensus on leadership. (RJM)
