Superintendent Efficacy Investigation of a Six-Component Leadership Framework for Developing Effective Learning Environments
Devono, Frank D.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, West Virginia University
This study, using the "Superintendent Efficacy Questionnaire" (Devono, Diaz & Callejo Perez, 2008), compared 413 West Virginian K-12 superintendents', principals' and teachers' perceptions of 6 superintendent leadership components: staff development administration, communication of mission, curriculum/instruction expertise, collaboration with the school board, consensus-building ability, and political bearing. A Kruskal-Wallis test produced significant results for 2 components: the superintendent's ability to (a) clearly articulate a mission that establishes direction/priorities for the system ([chi][superscript 2] = 10.99; df = 2; p = 0.004), and (b) work with the local school within the budget ([chi][superscript 2] = 7.260; df = 2; p = 0.027). Related sample "t" tests resulted in no significant differences in teachers' perceptions of their superintendent and their principal's perceptions of the superintendent.
