Crossvalidation and Confirmatory Factor Analysis of the 30-Item Leadership Behavior Description Questionnaire: Implications for Use by Graduate Students.
Witta, E. Lea; Gupton, Sandra Lee
The construct validity and internal consistency (reliability) of the 30-item form of the Leadership Behavior Descriptive Questionnaire (E. Fleishman, 1957; A. Halpin and B. Winer, 1957) as presented in a current leadership text was assessed. Classroom teachers and administrators (n=187) completed the instrument. Although reliability was found to be acceptable, neither the two-factor nor the five-factor model was adequate. Although the two-factor model produced adequate estimates of reliability, it should not be used without reverse coding. Reasons for these findings are discussed. An appendix contains two-factor and five-factor rotated convergent matrices. (Contains 5 figures, 3 tables, and 15 references.) (Author/SLD)
