Evaluating Committee and Individual Conference Roles of Educational Leaders.
Hecht, Alfred R.
This study described the initial development of a Committee Role Rating Scale (CRRS) and a Conference Role Semantic Differential (CRSD) as measures of these specific roles common to administrators at all educational levels. Although the CRRS showed general construct validity, the small amount of common variance accounted for by the factors and the low internal consistency reliability of the initial form of CRRS indicate a need for further development before nonresearch use. Because it is further developed than the CRRS, the CRSD showed greater construct validity, and a factor structure which accounts for more common variance. In addition, the CRSD has an acceptable internal consistency reliability of .86 and the general stability of its factors over time has been demonstrated. However, the internal consistency reliability of the factors should be increased by adding related scales to permit diagnostic use of factor scores. Scale substitutions or modifications should be made, also, to further increase the independence of the factors before this instrument is used widely. (Author/SM)
