A Comparison between the Peer Leadership Ratings of Administrators at the Time They Took an Educational Leadership Course and Their Current Leadership Ratings by Teachers Who Work with Them: A Preliminary Report.
Moody, Lamar; Blackbourn, Joe M.
Group Interaction Scale (GIS) peer ratings were obtained on all students enrolled in an educational leadership class between July of 1976 and August of 1980. The GIS was also administered to a random sample of ten teachers who work with twenty-nine of the administrators who had taken the leadership class. Computation of a zero-order correlation coefficient obtained a significant positive relationship between the two sets of scores on five of the ten items on the GIS. The implications for this are that, since certain behavioral characteristics displayed in a leadership class are stable, the challenge to administrator preparation programs is to design remedial measures to assist prospective administrators in changing low-rated behavior patterns before assuming an administrative position.
