A Comparison of Role Performance and Role Expectation of Supervisors in Selected Public School Districts in Kentucky.
Mefford, Mae Swinney
This study identified the responsibilities assigned to instructional supervisors (role performance) and what they felt these responsibilities should be (role expectation). Ninety Kentucky supervisors made up the sample. A 63-item questionnaire was administered in which respondents were requested both to identify their primary and secondary responsibilities and to enumerate those tasks they believed should be their responsibilities. Findings indicate that the tasks assigned to supervisors are primarily in the areas of developing curriculum, organizing for instruction, and providing inservice education. Basically, supervisors agree that most of the functions they perform are properly parts of their roles. Generally, where their role expectations and role performances are not the same, supervisors expect more rather than less responsibility; however, some supervisors do believe that their responsibilities in the areas of textbook distribution and federal program monitoring are not properly part of their jobs.
