Report on the Results of the Survey of Northwestern High School Staff in May, 1984, and a Comparison of Survey Results for the Last Two Years. High School Improvement Project.
Two surveys form the major components of the High School Improvement Project at Northwestern High School, Detroit. One is a survey of pupil behaviors, attitudes, and opinions; the other is a survey of staff behaviors, attitudes, and opinions. The present report brings together the findings for the 1984 staff survey and presents a comparison of staff responses for the last two years. This report is divided into five parts: three narrative sections and two appendices. The first narrative section presents staff responses aggregated by seven school effectiveness categories: safe and orderly environment, clear school mission, instructional leadership, high expectations, opportunity to learn and student time-on-task, frequent monitoring of student progress, and home-school relations. The second narrative section seeks to identify the school's strengths and weaknesses where there was a lack of consensus among respondents. The third narrative section presents the results from comparing 1984 staff responses with 1983 staff responses for each statement. The response frequencies, in percents, from the 1984 survey, are presented in Appendix A. In Appendix B, mean scores from the two surveys, t-values, and significance levels are displayed. (BW)
