Surveys were mailed to 160 principals and 146 responded, yielding a response rate of 91%. A series of 2-group t-tests and standard regression analyses were used to answer the research questions.
The most desired hiring criteria cited by principals (in order of importance) were enthusiasm, an applicant's ability to communicate effectively, an applicant who is student-centered, an applicant's beliefs on classroom management, and their knowledge of a variety of teaching strategies.
