Abstract

The validity of peer assessment for the selection of school principals by teachers was evaluated using principal ratings and work samples as criteria. In addition, the criteria related validity of ratings by peers nominated by job candidates was compared to validates for peers nominated by job candidates was compared to validates for peers who judged themselves to be qualified to rate the candidates. Results support the use of peer ratings and, to a more limited extent, the peer nomination process for the selection of school principals. Using a composite criterion of principal ratings and work sample performance, the validities of the ratee-nominated and all-peer assessments were .43 and .46, respectively.
