How will testing students annually help principals?

U.S. Department of Education:

Results from annual tests will show principals exactly how much progress each teacher's students have made. That will help principals make good decisions about program selection, curriculum arrangement, and professional development. Along with information gained through other provisions in the No Child Left Behind Act, principals will have the information and the freedom to get funding for exactly what teachers need to meet the needs of every child.
