Factors Accounting for Variability in Superintendent Ratings of Academic Preparation

AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v8 n2 p12-25 Sum 2011
This study utilized findings from the 2010 decennial study of the school superintendent to determine the extent to which four predictor variables ("courses," "professor credibility," "size" [enrollment of employing school district], and "gender") accounted for variability in superintendent overall ratings of their academic preparation. The standardized regression coefficients indicate that most of the variance accounted for in the linear equation was due to ratings of "professor credibility" and ratings of the perceived value of "courses." Neither the institutional variable, "school district size," nor the personal variable, "gender," accounted for meaningful variance in the overall ratings. Recommendations are made for extending this line of inquiry. (Contains 2 tables.)
