When discussing the evaluation of principals in this chapter there will be necessarily a strong emphasis on what is objective, measurable, and controllable in practice as far as is feasible. In order to be able to respond to the contemporary demands of evaluation, we will address the following topics: 1. Why should school principals be evaluated? In essence, in this section we are trying toexplore the culture of educational evaluation (e.g. system monitoring, school inspection) as well as the core purpose of the evaluation of school principals. 2. How are school principals evaluated? What are the means through which evaluation isconducted and by whom? What are the major evaluation methods utilized? 3. Critical review of evaluation practices. What do we know about what works and whatdoes not in the case of principal evaluation? 4. Challenges for Evaluation Practices and Future Research on Evaluation. How does evaluationrelate to principals' career stages? We conclude with some propositions for future research. (DIPF/Autor)
