Open Access Graduate Research Paper


Technology is constantly changing society as well as having a great influence on schools and education. Therefore the development of school leaders is needed to assist education in these changes. It is not easy to determine the procedures for selecting effective school administrators. In recent years there has been tremendous emphasis on improving those procedures including the adoption of psychological tests and "team ratings". The problem is how to choose those persons who possess the essential characteristics to be potential effective school administrators. There is no clear cut way for individuals interviewing candidates to select those best qualified to lead the schools. Therefore it is important that objective standards be established and adopted.
