An Analysis of the Relationship Between Organizational Climate and the Performance of Counselor Functions.
Cottingham, Harold F.; And Others
The study was designed to determine if a significant relationship existed between the organizational climate of the high school and the functions counselors performed in nine selected high schools in Pinellas County, Florida. Two instruments were used: (1) The Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire (OCDQ) dealing with eight organizational climate variables was administered to a random sample of 30 faculty members in each participating school, and (2) The Pinellas County Guidance Activity Log (PCGAL) which was used to record the average proportion of time spent by all counselors in eight schools on eight counselor functions. Statistical treatments included the multiple correlation coefficient, the F test, and the test for significance of linear correlation coefficient. It was concluded that no significant relationship existed between the organizational climate variables in the schools and the functions performed by counselors. Topics for further research are indicated. (Author/EK)
