Leadership Preparation Program Matters: Examining the Relationships Between Program Attributes and Graduate Learning Outcomes. Yongmei Ni, Diana G. Pounder (University of Utah)

With the Graduate Survey data of the INSPIRE surveys, this study utilizes structural equation modeling to assess the relationships among educational leadership preparation program quality variables and graduates’ learning outcomes, as reported by program graduates from multiple principal preparation programs. Our results show that faculty quality, program rigor and relevance, peer relationship, and internship are all significantly associated with various graduates’ learning outcomes.

Analysis of the Relative Effectiveness of Principals From Selected Preparation Programs in Four Urban Districts. Matthew Clifford, Eric Larsen (American Institutes for Research)

Principal preparation programs increasingly are asked to show strong postgraduation outcomes, such as student learning. This George W. Bush Institute study, which American Institutes for Research executed, uses comparative interrupted time series to estimate impact of placing new principals trained by four, innovative, urban preparation programs on student reading/English language arts and mathematics test scores. The study found differences in student performance in schools led by inexperienced principals that cannot be explained by participation in the selected preparation programs.

Principal Preparation Programs and Principal Outcomes. Jason A. Grissom, Hajime Mitani, David Woo (Vanderbilt University)

Despite concerns about variation in the quality of university-based principal preparation programs (PPPs), little research has assessed the degree to which outcomes for PPP graduates in fact vary systematically by program. Using data from Tennessee, we link approximately a decade’s worth of PPP graduates to their schools, licensure examination scores, and multiple measures of job performance. Our results have implications for how states use principal outcomes for accountability and evaluation of PPPs.

The Principal Pipeline: Mismatches in Leadership Preparation Purposes and Employment Outcomes. William Black, University of South Florida; Arnold Danzig, San Jose State/Arizona State University

This research examines the distribution of initial building-level administrative licensure across institutions of higher education in three state contexts (California, Indiana, Minnesota). The research across multiple state provides a snapshot of initial career paths of individuals prepared by university preparation programs, other institutional providers, as well as other entry routes into the principal pathway. This research and analysis can guide further state, regional, and program-level inquiry.

Understanding the Research About Principal Preparation Programs: A Systematic Literature Review. Jeremy B. Landa, University of Connecticut

This systematic literature review is an evaluation of the reporting on principal preparation programs. I attempted to determine whether reporting uses a dominant framework, the types of stakeholders who participate in the studies, and the quality of the instruments used to collect data. Findings include a majority of articles being oriented towards scientific management, the majority of participants in the study being practicing principals, and unreported analysis of reliability and validity of instruments used.
