ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Washington State University
In 1996 the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium, (ISLLC) a committee formed by the Council of Chief School Officers (CSSO) released a set of standards to guide the training of candidates for public school administrative positions. By 2008, when ISLLC released an updated set of standards, the standards had been adopted by at least 43 states, including Washington state, as the basis for administrative training programs. By 2011 Assessments and evaluation tools, based on the ISLLC standards, were also in place and had either been adopted or were being piloted. This study traces the development of the standards and provides a review of the literature surrounding research that has been conducted on the effectiveness of the ISLLC standards as a training tool. This study explores how, or if, superintendents in Washington state use the ISLLC standards in the evaluation process. The study reports how principals feel about the evaluation process and its effectiveness in guiding professional growth and development.
