Table of Contents
This study guide is designed to enhance your understanding and implementation of the evaluation system presented in Principal Evaluation: Standards, Rubrics, and Tools for Effective Performance, an ASCD book authored by James H. Stronge and published in 2013. Principal Evaluation provides a research-based set of performance standards, data collection tools, scoring rubrics, and other resources for accurately and comprehensively measuring principal effectiveness. To get the maximum benefit from the book, apply your own knowledge and experiences to the issues explored within its pages and reflect on your own beliefs and practices. Consider whether the leadership assessment practices in your school or district are sound. The questions provided in the study guide for each chapter are designed for reflection, either on your own or with an evaluation design team.
Part 1 of the book provides a conceptual framework for designing a principal evaluation system and outlines the research background and major components for such a system. Reflect on how the system might align with established practices in your school or district.
