Hacettepe University Journal of Education, v30 p63-72 2006
The aim of this study is to analyse the primary school teachers' perception of organizational health in terms of different variables. The sampling of the study is comprised of 385 primary school teachers who attended a course in Aksaray and Esenkoy in-service training centers. The Organizational Health Inventory (OHI-S), which was developed by Hoy and Miskel, was used in the research. The Organizational Health Inventory (OHI-S) scale was adapted to Turkish by the author and validity and reliability studies were conducted. Frequency, arithmetic mean, t-test and variance analysis were calculated in the study. The research results were tested at p less than 0.05 level. The research revealed that primary school teachers state that Initiating Structure (IS) dimension is much frequently realized, while Academic Emphasis (AE) subdimension is less realized. When the relationship between the subdimensions of the organizational health are analysed, a relationship from the middle level to the upper is observed. The strongest relationship is observed between the subdimensions of initiating structure (IS) and consideration (C). There was a significant relationship between gender and Institutional Integrity (II), marital status and morale, age and Initiating Structure (IS) and Academic Emphasis (AE), branch and Resource Support (RS) and Academic Emphasis (AE).
