Web-Based Walk-Throughs
Granada, Janet; Vriesenga, Michael
Principal Leadership, v8 n7 p24-27 Mar 2008
Walk-through classroom observations are an effective way for principals to learn about and shape instruction and culture in their schools. But many principals don't use walk-throughs to their potential because of the time it takes to store, process, analyze, and give feedback. To facilitate the use of this valuable observation tool, the Kentucky Department of Education implemented a Web-based walk-through system in fall 2005. The system enabled principals to customize walk-through templates to answer questions that are important to them and their faculty members, to gather observation data on handheld computers, and to upload the data to a Web server. Once the data were stored on the server, principals could easily e-mail copies of the observations to their teachers; analyze the data; and create, view, and print reports.
