Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln


Date of this Version



All schools exist to achieve certain set goals. However, there is no way the goals of a school can be achieved without putting in place certain mechanisms towards ensuring success. In the secondary school system, some mechanisms for achieving the school's goals include instructional supervision and evaluation report writing. These tools help to facilitate quality assurance in the school system. This paper, therefore, examines the concept of supervision, the purpose of supervision, the meaning of evaluation, evaluation report writing, steps involved in evaluation report writing and the implications for school library evaluation. Furthermore, the researchers adapted Androssette's notions and examined the works of other researchers on this subject matter to address the implications for school library evaluation. To ensure that the goals of evaluating the school library are met, it is reasonable to start by inquiring why school librarians should evaluate the school library.
