Krug, Samuel E.; And Others
Results of a descriptive quantitative study to identify personal beliefs and goals shared by effective school principals are presented in this report. Data were collected through an experience sampling study of principals, and through teacher and student attitudinal surveys. The experience sampling stage involved 81 Illinois elementary or secondary principals who were electronically paged at randomly selected times to record current activities, beliefs, and moods. Findings indicate that principals' beliefs most significantly influence leadership effectiveness. An extensive bibliography, 53 tables illustrating the results of responses to the Principal Activity Sampling Form and a copy fo the form are included. (LMI)
