The Impact of Leadership Styles of Special Education Administrators in Region 10 on Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System
Key, Gloria C.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Dallas Baptist University
This study uncovered and analyzed the relationship between districts' percentage levels for special education identification, according to a state level measure, and leadership profiles of current special education administrators within Texas Region 10 school districts. The leadership profiles were measured using the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire 5X (MLQ 5X). The districts' percentage levels for special education identification were provided by the state's Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS). The purpose was to identify the leadership profiles exhibited by the sample and to determine those profiles' correlation with the district reported special education accountability measure. SPSS 16.0 was used to organize and analyze the data. The tests of the hypotheses involved estimating Pearson Product Moment Correlation for each hypothesis. For all three hypotheses, no statistical significance was achieved. No relationships between the independent, or predictor, variables and the dependent, or outcome, variable were found. Therefore, null hypotheses #1, #2, and #3 were retained as stated in the hypotheses statements #1, #2, and #3. No statistically significant correlations occurred between the PBMAS indicator and the three levels of leadership. Due to the seminal nature of this investigation, determining whether a significant relationship was found between the independent and dependent variables was critical for framing future research.
