Student Achievement through the Development of Complete High School Culture
Lamphere, Michael Frederick, Jr.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
This dissertation undertook an investigation of school culture and achievement in the high school setting. The national data set ELS:2002 was used as the pool of variables because it allows for a complete picture of school culture comprising students, parents, administrators, and teachers. The data were selected based on current literature and subjected to an exploratory factor analysis to determine what, if any, underlying structure existed within the variables. This structure resulted in a new model which was subjected to confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modeling to determine its validity. The model was then subjected to a non-directional t-test to determine whether or not it was a predictor of math and reading. Results indicated that the model was valid and a predictor of both math and reading suggesting that a school culture comprised of student, parent, teacher, and administrator involvement can impact student achievement.
