Title

Using Factor Analysis to Redesign Field Supervisor Evaluations

Lead Author Affiliation

Educational and School Psychology

Introduction

Program evaluation has been increasingly important as more emphasis is placed on standards-based education. In school psychology field supervisors often are relied upon to ensure that graduate students are successfully transferring academic learning and knowledge to the applied setting of the school system. Programs face the need to develop measures that ask field supervisors to rate their graduate student(s) on a variety of skills. While there is research using factor analysis to redesign previously created measures (Karageorghis, 2006), rarely are the measures used by programs to evaluate these skills actually evaluated.
