dc.description.abstract The primary purpose of the study was to determine the perceived accuracy of the Indiana Assessment Center (IAC) process in rating potential administrators' skills in 12 specified areas as judged by IAC participants and their employing officials. Referent groups in the study included:1. IAC participants2. Employing officials of IAC participants 3. IAC assessorsA 22-item questionnaire containing the 12 specified skill areas was used to gather perceptions from the three educational referent groups.Findings1. Seventy-eight percent of the participants and 86% of the employing officials who read the IAC final report agreed that they would recommend friends and colleagues aspiring to be principals to participate in the IAC.2. Seventy-five percent of the participants and 71% of the employing officials who wrote a narrative response to the evaluative statement ("I would recommend to my friends and colleagues who aspire to be principals to participate in the IAC. Why or why not?") agreed that participation in the IAC was a positive professional experience.3. Participants with administrative experience attained higher scores than participants with instructional experience.4. The mean ratings of assessors were higher for females than males in the skill areas of judgment, leadership, range of interest, personal motivation, educational values, oral communication, and written communication.ConclusionsThe IAC was perceived by a majority of the participants and their employing officials as an accurate method of rating potential building administrators' skills in 12 specified areas. The participants' gender, experience, and position influenced participants' ratings in the 12 skill areas. en_US
