Editorial Reviews


"Strategic planning, accountability, and restructuring efforts often exacerbate targeted problems because the accurate information required for success is unavailable. This document offers a model monitoring system for utilizing important information by school and districts." 

(National Association of Secondary School Principals Bulletin)

"Exhaustive listings of variables and illustrative measures . . . the authors delineate almost every possible factor to be studied in assessing school progress." 

(Joseph Wales, Assistant Principal)
