School renewal, often referred to as a type of educational change, is a unique form of educational reform. School renewal helps educational administrators effectively recall what is already known, revive what has existed, repair but not replace what has been broken, and restore what has once been workable or dependable (McPherson, 1991). School renewal is becoming a more and more popular approach for educational administrators to seek educational improvement of their schools (e.g., improvement in schooling outcomes). School renewal has thus created a new educational context for educational research. For empirical educational research on school renewal (e.g., the effects of school renewal on schooling outcomes), the quality (effectiveness) of school renewal efforts by educational administrators must be measured in a valid and reliable way. The lack of credible instruments has been a great challenge for educational researchers who have a focus on school renewal and its effects on the daily life of teachers and students. In response, we have attempted to explore with instrumentation that could provide a good means to measure school renewal efforts. Over the past five years, we engaged in immersive efforts to develop and validate such instruments. In this paper, we would introduce three instruments: the instrument of Orientation for School Renewal, the instrument of High Integrity and Fidelity Implementation for School Renewal, and the instrument of School Renewal Principles and Practices, all of which were designed to fill in the gap in the research literature on measurement of school renewal as educational change (reform).
