Measuring Illinois Public School Practitioners' Agreement on Seven Indicators of School Effectiveness.
Jandes, Kenneth M.; And Others
This paper examines the perceptions of practicing school superintendents, principals, and teachers as to the degree to which the Edmonds Correlates and other indicators of school effectiveness were present in Illinois public elementary and high schools. Two companion studies examined the perceptions of Illinois public elementary and high school superintendents, principals, and teachers, and assessed the congruence of their viewpoints in seven areas of school effectiveness: 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 main findings of the elementary study were that personnel from schools having a student enrollment size between 250 and 551 appeared to display similar perceptions, and personnel associated with large elementary schools or with schools in which principals were in that position for fewer than 5 years appeared to display disagreements in their perceptions of school effectiveness. The major findings of the secondary study were that principals and teachers were most alike in their perceptions and that superintendents and teachers were least alike in their perceptions of school effectiveness.
