The Intentions of Florida Educational Leadership Graduate Students to Pursue Administrative Positions
Eadens, Daniel Wayne
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of South Florida
This study examined the intentions of educational leadership students in Florida university graduate programs in regards to demographics and self-assessed leadership characteristics. The study employed a non-experimental design wherein Regression, ANOVA, and Multiple Regression statistical techniques were employed to explore intent. It examined the influences that self-assessed leadership behavior, gender, number of credits completed, and age had on respondent intentions as measured by the Leadership Practice Inventory and the Demographics and Intentions Questionnaire. The highest assessed priori sample size was 159 when power was set at 0.80, alpha was 0.05, and the expected effect size was set at 0.10. This study is important because it identified additional reasons administrative pools have perceived shortages of quality candidates using job choice theory as a frame of reference and identified. Results were made available in order to offer the Florida Department of Education, school district leadership academies, and university educational leadership departments valuable insight for reform of selection, recruitment, and retention.
