Student Achievement in Language Arts and the Organizational Climate of Schools. Final Report.
Madden, John B.
The purpose of this study was to supplement the knowledge available in the field of educational administration relative to the effects of open and closed organizational climates on pupil language arts achievement by disadvantaged pupils in inner-city elementary schools. The study was undertaken in 16 elementary schools in Kansas City, Missouri. In the report of the study, the related literature is reviewed, the methodology employed is described, and the analysis of the data presented. At the end, it is concluded that "when the effects of intelligence of disadvantaged grade 6 pupils are controlled, open and closed organizational climates appear to have no effect on achievement; however, when the same effects of intelligence are controlled, there are significant differences in the interactive effects between organizational climate and sex."
