Holyfield, Beverly R.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The purpose of this study was to build upon Askins's 2002 research by examining the perceptions of Georgia educators as it relates to the instructional leadership role of the principal in helping 11th- and 12th-grade teachers adjust to the newly implemented Georgia Performance Standards and high-stakes testing. This study used qualitative-dominant mixed methods, with a triangulation design, to analyze the phenomenon of instructional leadership of the principal in assisting 11th- and 12th-grade teachers with Georgia High School Graduation Test (GHSGT) preparation. Moreover, the quantitative archival data were compared to the results of the qualitative analysis from participant's interviews to determine if the results from the qualitative interviews could be validated by (i.e., align with) the quantitative students' GHSGT results. Using a sample of 11th- and 12th-grade teachers from a small, suburban Atlanta school district (with approximately 16,000 students) who are directly responsible for preparing students for the GHSGT, responses were collected using an interview protocol developed by Askins.
