Abstract

The present research paper aims to investigate the actual and desirable performance of school leaders in the light of human performance technology from the perspective of school leaders and teachers of the primary, intermediate, and high school grades. It identifies the way of bridging the gap between the actual and desirable performance of these school leaders. It presents a proposal to develop their performance in the light of human performance technology (HPT), regarding its dimensions including (organization, administrative jobs, and teacher professional development). The author adopted the descriptive and analytical method and applied a three-domain questionnaire of (305) school leaders and (380) teachers. The results showed the high levels of the actual performance indicators of all dimensions in the light of human performance technology. They also indicated that the dimension of administrative jobs was ranked first, the organization dimension (school) second, respectively, and the teacher professional development dimension was ranked last. They revealed the importance of the desirable performance indicators and the average gap between the actual and desirable performance of school leaders regarding the organization dimension and the teacher professional development dimension. The research paper recommends providing school leaders with much power, authority, and abilities to enhance their role in promoting teacher professional development. Moreover, it suggests conducting further studies to adopt a proposal for developing the performance of school leaders.
