Evaluating School-Based Management: A Tool for Team Self-Review
Turnbull, Barbara
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v8 n1 p73-79 Jan 2005
Educational research has contributed a great deal to current understanding of effective school-based management (i.e. Wholstetter and Mohrman 1996, Leithwood and Menzies 1998). Through this research, practitioners have been given guidance on what constitutes effective teams. However, educational research has yet to provide comparable guidance in the areas of team evaluation and self-review. There is a paucity of research available to practitioners on how management teams can monitor and self-evaluate their progress, goals, and outcomes over time. The purpose of the current study was to propose an evaluation tool--a values inquiry checklist--that could be used by teams to self-evaluate important aspects of team functioning such as transparency in decision-making and accountability. The checklist was developed from evaluation research on values inquiry (Mark et al. 2000, Mark 2001) and is intended to be an unobtrusive and adaptable evaluation tool for school management teams.
