Well I agree the funds and time to venture in to this would be huge and I'm not sure how effective it would be. A longitudinal study would be optimal to get a true picture of Principal competancy but the data collected would be subject to the same problems faced by education data - the missing link between the teacher and the student achievement. After thinking about it more, the only way this data would be usable would be if it bridged that gap. I agree that teacher surveys and self reports would be skewed. Looking at the other artifacts you mentioned make this a huge, possibly unmanageable project.
Is there a way to focus this? What do you really want to know here? What path would result in the most useful piece of information to spur change?
