Dyer, Micah A.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Stephen F. Austin State University
This mixed method study was designed to investigate first year campus administrators' perceptions of the effectiveness of the Texas state-mandated principal mentoring program. The study examined campus administrators' perceptions of the effectiveness of the program using a survey instrument adapted from Dr. Norman H. Cohen's (1998), "Principles of Adult Mentoring Survey Inventory" (PAMI) along with one open-ended research question to gather qualitative responses. Through the use of EXCEL spreadsheet software, the mean and standard deviations were calculated for each question of the survey, and descriptive statistics were used to describe the findings. Survey results show the mandated mentoring program as being "Not Effective" according to the PAMI scoring guide. Results were mixed however from qualitative results with most respondents discussing the benefits of the program. All conclusions, recommendations for improvements, and further research are included in this study. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
