Learning Outcomes of an Educational Leadership Cohort Program
Tucker, Pamela D.; Henig, Cheryl B.; Salmonowicz, Michael J.
Educational Considerations, v32 n2 p27-35 Spr 2005
The purpose of this study was twofold. The immediate objective was to collect survey data from students, both before and after program delivery, to assess the effectiveness of the field-responsive curriculum developed for this cohort. The second purpose was to pilot an approach to program evaluation on a tightly controlled basis to begin the process of documenting "direct learning outcomes". For both purposes, the survey solicited detailed information from students regarding the aspects of school leadership that they viewed as most important to their development and the extent to which they thought they were prepared to fulfill these functions. Despite initial perceptions of cohort participants that they had high levels of preparation on many administrative tasks, perceptions did shift over the course of the program and statistically significant differences were found in their perceived levels of preparation for administrative work.
