Factors That Measure Supervision Effectiveness: A Comparison of the SQ and SQ-R.
Williams, Barbara A.; And Others
This study attempted to identify relationships between three measures of supervision effectiveness (satisfaction, supervisor competence, and supervision's contribution to skill development) and 48 supervisor behaviors as presented in the Supervision Questionnaire-Revised (SQ-R) and to compare the results with those of a previous study conducted on the Supervision Questionnaire (SQ). Subjects were 42 masters and doctoral clinical psychology students at a small southeastern university. Each received the SQ-R in his/her mailbox following completion of a 150-hour therapy practicum. Correlational analysis revealed 23 of the 48 supervisor behaviors correlated significantly (p<.01) with measures of satisfaction, supervisor competence, and contribution to skills. Of these 23 behaviors, 15 matched those identified in the earlier study using the SQ. Suggested by the results is that approximately 50% of the supervisor behaviors identified on the SQ-R are significantly related to supervision effectiveness as perceived by supervisees. Greater than 50% of these behaviors were consistent with those earlier identified using the SQ, suggesting a moderate degree of continuity between instruments. This continuity increases confidence in previously published results, and suggests that the revised form is measuring variables similar to the those measured by the original form. (Author)
