Yannucci, Michael J.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Dowling College
The purpose of this study was to investigate school administrators' perceptions of teachers' adherence to the highly effective critical attributes of the four domains of Charlotte Danielson's "Framework for Teaching" (Planning and Preparation, The Classroom Environment, Instruction, and Professional Responsibilities) in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Further, this study investigated average-need and high and low graduation rate school districts in New York State in relation to a 3-year average of graduation rates from 2010, 2011, and 2012. Moreover, this study investigated school administrators' perceptions of the highly effective critical attributes of the four domains of Charlotte Danielson's "Framework for Teaching" in high and low graduation rate schools in relation to respondents' number of years served as an administrator, school level, level of education, and gender. A survey instrument was created in order to analyze school administrators' perceptions of teachers' adherence to the highly effective critical attributes. Districts were identified as high graduation rate or low graduation rate based on a three-year average of their graduation rates from 2010, 2011, and 2012. The review of the data was accomplished through the analyses of an 84-item survey that contained Likert-scale questions on a five-point scale. The findings from this study suggest that there is greater adherence to the highly effective critical attributes in high graduation rate schools. In each of the four variables, there was a statically significant difference between high graduation rate schools and low graduation rate schools. Additionally, findings indicate that The Classroom Environment is a predictor of a school's graduation rate.
