Principal Evaluation: Standards, Rubrics, and Tools for Effective Performance

Synopsis

Effective principals run effective schools--this much we know. Accurately measuring principal effectiveness, however, has long been an elusive goal for school administrators. In this indispensable book, author James H. Stronge details the steps and resources necessary for designing a comprehensive principal evaluation system that is based on sound research and established best practices. Here you'll find everything you need to thoroughly assess principal performance, including

• An in-depth analysis of research findings related to principal evaluation.

• A set of seven field-tested and research-based principal performance standards.

• Detailed indicators for each standard that describe the principal's duties and expected level of performance.

• A four-point performance appraisal rubric for each standard.

• Forms and checklists for use in compiling evidence of performance and completing evaluations.

• A step-by-step guide to planning, designing, implementing, and troubleshooting a successful evaluation system.

If there's a new principal evaluation system rolling out in your school or district, or if your administration is planning to build one, Principal Evaluation: Standards, Rubrics, and Tools for Effective Performance is essential for ensuring that the system is accurate, fair, and effective.

Excerpt

The purpose of this book is to provide guidance on the design of a comprehensive principal evaluation system that is grounded on the extant research and established best practices. The book is organized into three interlocking parts:

Part 1: How to Build an Evaluation System That Works.

This section describes a conceptual framework for designing a principal evaluation system. It then moves to a detailed discussion of how to build such a system on a solid foundation of research-based performance standards.

Part 2: Comprehensive Set of Principal Performance Standards, Indicators, and Rubrics. This is the heart of the book. It provides a set of seven thoroughly researched and field-tested principal performance standards, including six that are based on the principal’s work and one that is based on the results of the principal’s work. This section also includes a solid set of “look-fors” (i.e., performance indicators) that describe what constitutes good work and how the principal is expected to perform it. Finally, each . . .
