The Multidimensional Principal Performance Rubric (MPPR) and the Multidimensional Leadership Performance Rubric (MLPR) are assessment tools developed by LCI to support a balanced and purposeful professional assessment system, and promote the development of quality practice.  Our Field Guides support the successful implementation of these rubrics.

What are the Field Guides?

Developed to support the understanding and use of the MPPR and the MLPR, the Field Guides and accompanying workbooks provide users with the theory that anchors the rubrics, and outline an evaluation process that integrates goals and improvement.  Concrete application activities and organizing forms are included to guide and support both the rubrics and process.  

Different versions of the Field Guides and Field Guide Workbooks are offered to meet the needs of each professional involved.  Consistent sections support those processes, theories and questions that are important for all users, while different questions, considerations, activities and forms have been designed to meet the diverse and unique needs of individual users’ roles and purposes.
