The Perceived School Climate in Invitational Schools in Hong Kong: Using the Chinese Version of the Inviting School Survey-Revised (ISS-R)
Ng, Carmen K. M.; Yuen, Mantak
Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice, v17 p11-21 2011
This article describes the use of the Chinese translation of the revised Inviting School Survey (ISS-R; Smith, 2005; Smith & Bernard, 2004) to measure the invitational climate of seven invitational secondary schools in Hong Kong. The five subscales of Chinese version of ISS-R were found to be valid and reliable in a sample of 706 Grade 11 students. Students' perceptions of the invitational climate in the key areas of people, places, processes, policies, and programs (5P's) were analyzed. It is suggested that indications of invitational climate in the 5P's could facilitate teachers' and administrators' consideration in improving invitational practices to cater for the needs of different groups of students.
