Superintendents' Assessment of Hispanic, Latino, and White Job Candidates for a High School Principalship: Effects of Cultural Subdivisions and Student Characteristics

Credentials of hypothetical standing principal candidates are assessed in a 3X2 completely crossed factorial design varying diversity of applicants (Hispanic, Latino, or White) and diversity of students (low vs. high Hispanic enrollments). Screening decisions of superintendents are assessed according to job-related criteria, probability of an interview invitation, and a likely initial salary offer and are analyzed by a stepdown ANOVA. Results indicate screening decisions of superintendents are influenced by characteristics of applicants as well as of students. Equally qualified applicants are perceived as being unequally qualified when screening decisions are viewed from a multidimensional theoretical framework and when screening is analyzed as a process rather than as an event.
