Demystifying Assessment Leadership
Noonan, Brian; Renihan, Patrick
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n56 p1-21 Nov 2006
In a climate of accountability, the development of "assessment literacy" among school professionals has become critical to school success. The provision of "assessment leadership" is viewed as the means by which such literacy can be enhanced. The writers examine the conditions under which student achievement gains can be realized. Implications of assessment reform for the instructional leadership role are translated into the knowledge, appreciations and skills that can help principals transform "assessment leadership expectations" into "instructional leadership practice".
