A Guide to Constructing and Interpreting the "School Vision Inventory" Diagnostic Profile.
Johnson, Bob L., Jr.; And Others
Blumberg and Greenfield (1986) identified a key element of leadership associated with school effectiveness--the principal's "vision" for his or her school. Using a 14-item instrument developed to measure the extent to which teachers in a given school know, share, and work toward realization of their principal's vision, this paper offers some steps in constructing and interpreting a vision profile for a given school, or a measure of the extent to which a principal's vision is known and shared within a school. The School Vision Inventory (SVI), which creates subscales for the factors of internalization, exchange, and sacrifice, is described. Vision profile data from a selected sample of 57 schools are offered for consideration and comparison. Directions for using the SVI for research and school improvement purposes are also provided. Five tables and four figures are included. (Author/LMI)
