The purpose of this study was to investigate the perceptions and practices of the evaluation process of school superintendents in Nebraska as viewed by them. A review of the literature provided the major impetus for this study. The data were collected through administration of a questionnaire mailed to 18 Class A superintendents and 31 randomly selected superintendents each from Classes B, C, and D. Descriptive statistics were used to report quantitative data. A one-way ANOVA and chi-square were used to report Likert scale and mutually exclusive items, respectively.
