Baseline Data on School Climate, Classroom Climate, and Self Concept as a Learner in Schools Using School Based Decision Making.
Valesky, Thomas; And Others
A pilot program based on a school-based decision making model (SBDM) implemented in eight inner city schools is evaluated in this report. The relationships between program effectiveness and school climate, between teacher characteristics and teacher perceptions of school climate, and between student characteristics and student perceptions of school climate are examined. Three instruments are applied to assess school climate, classroom climate, and self-concept: the Tennessee School Climate Inventory (TSCI); Tennessee Classroom Climate Inventory (TCCI); and Self Concept as a Learner--Revised (SCALR). Factor analysis indicates that perceptions of successful program implementation correlate positively with school climate. A comparison with nonparticipating schools shows that schools in the program demonstrate a more positive school climate. Three statistical tables are included. (LMI)
