Opinion Surveys: Various Perceptions from Different Response Groups.
Hennings, Sara Strouss
In 1988, opinion surveys were administered to 5 different respondent groups at each of the 15 pilot sites participating in North Carolina's Career Development Program (CDP) for educators. Five separate questionnaires were developed for the following respondent groups: (1) teachers; (2) principals and assistant principals; (3) central office staff and special groups of educators; (4) school superintendents; and (5) school board members. The questionnaires focused on the respondents' opinions of the CDP. Of the 7,354 surveys sent to the pilot sites, 6,528 were returned (overall response rate of 89%). Specific questions were asked about teacher and principal performance evaluation and the evaluation criteria for other positions. The comprehensive survey yielded many perceptions of the CDP. Teachers, central office personnel, and special groups of educators were more positive in their responses when they had more than 10 years of experience, while principals and assistant principals tended to be more positive with experience over 11 years. Overall, principals and assistant principals were more positive than were teachers on 50 of the 54 questions asked of both groups. Twenty-four tables present survey results, which can be useful at the state level as well as the pilot site level. (SLD)
