Universal K-12 Leadership Evaluations Rubrics

Evaluations for Everyone and Anyone

SuperEval offers evaluations that are universal across specific roles and responsibilities, which can be used with virtually any position within an organization.

The Framework for Reflection & Growth helps K-12 school leaders create, develop, and sustain a positive organizational culture with an emphasis on reflective leadership and goal attainment.

The Framework for Reflection and Growth represents a two-year-long collaboration with our team of professionals to create an instrument that can be used in an evaluation process by virtually any school leader or member of an organization. The Framework is organized by 17 core competencies of effective leadership in four domains of Mindset, Personal Qualities/Values, Professional Qualities, and Skills/Knowledge.

This rubric helps  leadership teams create a culture of reflective practices on those qualities and characteristics which are valued in leadership and in colleagues.

While evaluation rubrics represent a competency-based approach to an evaluation, SuperEval also offers a “goal-based” approach in using a strictly performance-based evaluation. In this approach, education leaders in an evaluator/evaluatee relationship co-create annual goals derived from longer-term district goals or areas of priority. These annual goals create a performance-based evaluation process to advance organizational priorities sometimes derived from longer-term goals or strategic plans. 

These goals can be articulated in a variety of goal frameworks. Regardless of which framework is employed to create goals, perhaps the most important aspect to a goal is to define and agree on the indicators of success. This is often accomplished through identifying the deliverable(s) for each goal. The goal-based approach can be used in any leadership evaluation process.
