Meehan, Merrill L.; Cowley, Kimberly S.; Craig, James R.; Balow, Nancy; Childers, Robert D.
The Continuous School Improvement Questionnaire (CSIQ) developed by the AEL helps a school staff gauge its performance on six dimensions related to continuous school improvement. Each member of the staff responds to the CSIQ individually. Although results might be used at the district or regional level, the most widely intended unit for applying the results is at the school level. This manual contains information about procedures for proper administration, scoring, and reporting of results, and information about the interpretation and use of results. The manual also provides information about the research base for the CSIQ. The technical report portion of this manual provides information about the development of the instrument through pilot and field tests. Normative data are given for different types of schools and for other variables found in the school setting. Charts for converting scale raw scores to percentiles also are provided, allowing the comparison of one school's CSIQ scores to those of other schools. The CSIQ instrument is included with this manual. (Contains 27 tables.) (SLD)
