Assessing Multiple Stakeholders' Perceptions of an Effective Principal Evaluation System
Tran, Henry; Bon, Susan C.
Education Leadership Review, v16 n2 p1-18 Nov 2015
Existing principal evaluation research has failed to include the perspectives of multiple stakeholders. The present research study used focus group interviews to gather data about designing a principal evaluation process that includes these perspectives. Focus groups were conducted with principals, parents, certificated staff, and classified employees (N=34) in a public school district. Our findings revealed five common themes for all stakeholders, as well as themes unique to specific participant groups. We then examined the themes to determine how they aligned with the two primary purposes of evaluation: accountability and professional development (Stronge, 1995).
