Designing State Accountability Systems to Improve School-Based Organizational Learning.
Shujaa, Mwalimu J.; Richards, Craig E.
Administrator's Notebook, v33 n2 p1-4 1989
Using principal interviews about state accountability systems in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, and Pennsylvania, this article describes two organizational learning cultures (the symbolic and the strategic) that differ in their attitude toward, and use of, assessment information. Apparently, state accountability systems can either complement or confound organizational learning. Includes 13 references. (MLH)
