Evaluation model critique

I’m working on a Management exercise and need support.

Critiquing a Principal Evaluation Model

This week, you reviewed the primary leadership roles of school boards and superintendents involved in school improvement, but the leadership position closest to influencing the classroom is that of the building principal. You will delve into this leadership position in more depth next week, but to preview this position, read The Effective Principal (Mendels, 2012). This comprehensive article focuses on the key elements of leadership that are required of effective leaders at the building level. It is important to note that this does not cover all of the areas and responsibilities principals face daily. In fact, often principals are so bogged down with operational issues that they find it difficult to focus on what many believe is their most important school role—that of instructional leader.

Based on this week’s required studies, critique an existing principal evaluation instrument for quality and comprehensiveness in relation to standards and two state exemplars. Compare your local school district’s process for evaluating principals with the five pivotal practices Mendels (2012) described and the Oregon, Washington, or other state’s principal evaluation documents as defined in the required studies section.

Put yourself in the shoes of a school board member or a superintendent/assistant superintendent as you complete your critique. Describe the criteria necessary for a successful building principal as revealed in, The Effective Principal (Mendels, 2012). Consider what board members and superintendents would find important for evaluating the work of principals, and if Mendels’s recommendations, along with the Oregon or Washington examples, are comprehensive and sufficient

To complete this assignment successfully, you should also consider the 10 Professional Standards for Educational Leaders in Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (National Policy Board for Educational Administration, 2015).

Compose a 4-5 page APA-formatted critique. Include at least one additional resource that you find on your own from outside the course, which could be a book from another course in the program or a peer-reviewed article from the online library or Google Scholar. You may also use the Wallace Foundation report included in the review section, above.

Support your statements with evidence from the required studies and your research. Cite and reference your sources in APA style.
