Hitchings, Sarah; Zeitz, Katy; Carpenter, Bradley W.
AERA Online Paper Repository, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (Washington, DC, Apr 8-12, 2016)
This study investigated the impact of the transformation and turnaround intervention models and leadership perception on the achievement of students attending Kentucky's priority high schools. Repeated-measures analyses of variance were conducted to show the effect of the chosen model on academic achievement of students with test scores obtained during 3 years of model implementation. Factorial multivariate analyses of variance were performed to investigate possible differences between the academic performances of students in schools using the transformation model and the turnaround model and possible differences between schools that were classified as having high ratings for the effectiveness of school leaders versus schools that were relatively low in leadership ratings. Additionally, the combined effects of school model and leadership effectiveness were investigated.
