A Research Study of Selected Successful Women Administrators in the Educational Field. Draft.
An interest in learning the characteristics and self-images of successful women administrators and how they attained their current career levels led to a survey of 112 women administrators from 12 large Midwestern urban school districts and 3 Midwestern educational laboratories. This report draft reviews the literature concerning women managers: their personal characteristics, varied role combinations, role models, motivations, and supporting influences. The survey instrument design and the methodology for selecting the participants (a 64 percent response rate was received for 172 mailed questionnaires) are explained. The data are not analyzed beyond responses to 71 questions shown in numbers or percentages. Responses to a self-rating quiz on personality traits are illustrated by graphs. In the final section a completed survey presents a profile of the average respondent. The report ends with a bibliography; information on the sponsor of the research, CEMREL, Inc., and the Training Program for Minorities and Women (TPMW); copies of the cover and reminder letters sent to survey participants; and a reprint of the survey instrument.
