The Organizational Climate Descriptive Questionnaire: A Process Feedback Application in an Elementary School
Watkins, J. Foster; Cleveland, Allen D.
Online Submission, Educational Technology, v17 n8 p31-33 Aug 1977
Cleveland, a former student and colleague of Watkins was aware of his earlier use of the Halpin and Crofts Organizational Climate Descriptive Questionnaire (OCDQ) at the school level in a school improvement initiative. Later as superintendent of a small city school system, Cleveland encouraged an elementary principal to utilize the results from the OCDQ as a part of the data base in support of a similar initiative. He reported generally positive results with a feeling from the school staff that the OCDQ process had been helpful in focusing the professional development efforts at the individual and school levels. Those feelings were found not to be related to years in education or years in that school.
