Sheridan, Terrance John
A system of individually guided education in the multiunit elementary school organizes the school into instruction and research units headed by a unit leader. This study determined the extent of agreement among and between principals, teachers, and unit leaders regarding expectations held for the unit leader role; examined the relationship between referent group agreement and performance effectiveness ratings; and investigated the relationship between selected organizational variables and agreement on role expectations. Data were collected from a sample of 48 principals, 48 unit leaders, and 96 teachers in Wisconsin districts. (Author/MLF)
