The Development of the Supervisory Behavior Description Questionnaire (SBDQ). Form 2.
Lucht, Angelin S.; And Others
The Supervisory Behavior Description Questionnaire (SBDQ), Form 2, is a modified semantic differential scale using five pairs of bipolar adjectives to describe supervisory behavior. Form 2 of the instrument was field tested to determine which supervisory behaviors 60 graduate students in education perceived as satisfying or motivating. These perceptions were correlated with the students' scores on the Tennessee Self Concept Scale (TSCS) and three of its subtests to determine whether a relationship exists between self-concepts and scores on the SBDQ, Form 2. A multiple regression analysis correlated the results of the TSCS scales and the demographic variables of race, sex, level of teaching assignment, administrative experience, and level of educational attainment with two significant adjective pairs (satisfying/dissatisfying and pleasant/unpleasant) on the SBDQ, Form 2, subscales. The results of the multiple regression for each significant adjective pair in each subscale are shown in tables. The results of the study described were instrumental in determining necessary revisions of the SBDQ, Form 2. (Author/MLF)
