The Perceptive Eye/Ear Game: An Activity That Encourages Practice on Best Practice; Honing Observation and Problem-Solving Skills of Administrators.
Diamantes, Thomas; Williams, Marium
This paper describes a game-format instructional strategy for administrator development based on a modified case method, the Kentucky New Administrator Standards, and the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) standards. This instructional strategy is intended to help prepare school leaders to assess and be assessed using authentic standards. The game strategy used is the Perceptive Eye/Ear Game (PEG). The first step for official reform of the administration-preparation program was the formation of the Kentucky Council for New Administrator Standards, a council composed of principals, superintendents, teachers, and university administrator educators, which devised some standards. The game questions used were taken directly from samples in the Principal Licensure Assessment prepared by the ISLLC and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The game consists of two modules, Evaluation of Actions of Others and Analysis of Information and Decision-Making. Vignettes are used to provide situations similar to those that school administrators are likely to encounter. The framing concept is that a student who produces a large pool of information sources is a resourceful problem-solver who is an asset to organizations. (RJM)
