The papers in this publication were presented at a 3-day staff conference of the center for the advanced study of educational administration. The objectives of the conference were to (1) assess the actual and potential contributions of various academic disciplines to the program area of the center, (2) evaluate the field of administration as an area of academic interest, (3) discuss existing deficiencies in research and practice, and (4) examine the relationships of educational institutions to the larger social and cultural environments in which they are embedded. The seven papers that contributed to the achievement of these objectives presented the following topics--(1) the emerging science of administration as revealed by the literature in a variety of academic disciplines, (2) an analysis of the deficiencies of current research in educational administration and the correctives needed to produce research of high quality, (3) educational administration as viewed from the perspective of the sociology of education, (4) means to develop a social psychology of educational administration, (5) the use of analytical techniques employed in economics to make decision-making in education more rational and systematic, (6) cultural factors in the educational process, and (7) the schools as transmission agents for political values. This publication is available from the center for the advanced study of educational administration, university of oregon, eugene, oregon, 120 pages. (Al)

Measuring the implementation of differentiated staffing; a comparison of two elementary schools by W. W Charters( Book )

9 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questionnaires were administered to the staffs of two elementary schools as part of a program to identify salient forces within schools that facilitate or inhibit the implementation of educational innovations. One school, an "experimental" school, was engaged in a district differentiated staffing project; the other, a "control" school, was a conventional school of similar size and student clientele. Findings indicate that two general inferences may be drawn about the innovative process. First, some structural changes are almost inescapable in an innovating school and its work system, and the consequences of such changes are not always congruent with the innovation intended. Secondly, major implementation projects normally have "disruptive effects" that divert teacher attention away from those duties they regard as their foremost responsibility. These circumstances constitute the hidden costs of change and should be recognized in advance in order that false expectations of success are not entertained and provisions can be made during the implementation phase for minimizing or absorbing these expectations. When excessive, the costs of change carry the imminent threat of staff disaffection with the innovation. (Author/WM)

Teacher perceptions of administrator behavior by W. W Charters( Book )

6 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part I replicated research concerning teacher attitudes toward administrators. Previous findings indicated teachers in small school systems had a stronger sense of superintendent leadership than did teachers in large school systems. However, superintendents responded with opposite perception in self-analysis tests. The replication recommended that the findings be regarded as entirely fortuitous. Part ii indicated the invalidity of the leadership behavior description questionnaire because of inconsistency of results. It was recommended that the investigator assess carefully the opportunities for his respondents to observe the kinds of behavior upon which they will be asked to report
Social psychology : the study of human interaction by Theodore M Newcomb( Book )

9 editions published between 1950 and 1959 in 3 languages and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of the writing of texts in social psychology there is no end. The author or each of them believes that he has a special justification for offering his own particular version of the common theme, and I am no exception to this general rule. Perhaps I can formulate the raison d'etre of this volume by outlining a little of its history and by expressing my indebtedness to a few of the individuals from whom its main ideas have been borrowed. These and other converging influences have led me to frame nearly every kind of social-psychological problem in terms of psychological processes which take their particular form from the interactional context in which they occur. And I have come to see group memberships as providing the sine qua non for specifying the interactional context of human social behavior. Groups provide their members with shared frames of reference--particularly in the form of positions and roles, in terms of which they perceive themselves as well as one another. So little social behavior is immune to such shared influences, and so much of it is very largely determined by them, that I have come to accord them a central place in my own thinking. I hope that, in so doing, I have not fallen into the fallacy of assuming that social behavior springs merely from the interiorizing of social norms. This would be quite as disastrous as to ignore social norms altogether. At any rate, this point of view has led me to view social behavior as occurring on the part of biological organisms which are also group members. To understand it we must study both individual life and group life, in terms of a single body of coherent concepts and principles. I have therefore tried to sketch an outline of the psychology of group membership in a way which is neither merely psychological nor merely sociological but which, I hope, may contribute to the growth of a body of concepts and principles of truly social-psychological nature"--Preface.

Change in the governance of the school's instructional program : a study of multiunit elementary schools by W. W Charters( Book )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A longitudinal study of elementary schools formally implementing the Multiunit School model collected data suggesting that teachers' feelings of autonomy and job satisfaction are less closely associated with teacher participation on faculty teams for the management of instruction and school administration than with the presence or absence of dominance by school administrators. Data were gathered every 6 months from 14 schools, from the spring before they implemented the multiunit model through the completion of their second year using the model. Parallel data were gathered from 13 nonimplementing schools, primarily from the same districts. Questionnaires and interviews were used to collect information on the organization of instruction, the governance of decision-making, task-related communication among staff members, and staff work attitudes. This report describes the schools, faculty characteristics (including turnover), the measures used, the methods of data analysis, the evolution of school governance and staff interaction patterns in the schools observed, and the findings relative to the attitudinal effects of the changes studied. Four pages of references are provided. (Pgd)

Sense of teacher work autonomy : measurement & findings by W. W Charters( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is an early release of a measurement instrument used in a longitudinal project Management Implications of Team Teaching (mitt), and is taken from a larger, technical Project mitt report, "Governance and Task Interdependence in Schools: First Report of a Longitudinal Study." The report describes the development of a 24-item questionnaire scale assessing the sense of work autonomy among classroom teachers. The conceptualization of the domain and the procedures used in scale development are described. Data regarding scale reliability and score distributions for a population of teachers as well as the results of factor analyses undertaken to examine the dimensionality of the scale are included.

Contrasts in the process of planned change of the school's instructional organization : a symposium by W. W Charters( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seminar papers focus on two sequentially-related projects concerning the implementation phase of educational innovation: (1) a set of observational case studies of schools in their first year's effort to initiate differentiated staffing plans and (2) briefer but more pointed case studies of elementary schools that reputedly had succeeded in implementing a multiunit school model. The five papers in this compendium summarize some of the findings that have emerged from these two projects. The first paper describes the evolution of the differentiated staffing project in a school district, from a district-level view of events. The author analyzes the tacit and sometimes explicit assumptions about organizations, people, and change that guided the attempts by project administrators to innovate. The next two papers discuss the implementation process as viewed at the "grass-roots" level in two of the district's project schools. The fourth paper characterizes the adjustment problems that confronted teachers and paraprofessionals as they worked out their role relationships during the year of differentiated staffing implementation. The fifth paper brings together the studies of four elementary schools that have succeeded in altering their forms of staff organization. Selected bibliographies are included at the end of each paper. (Author/DN)
Task interdependence among teachers : measurement & findings by W. W Charters( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is an early release of a measurement instrument used in a longitudinal project Management Implications of Team Teaching (mitt), and is taken from a larger, technical Project mitt report, "Governance and Task Interdependence in Schools: First Report of a Longitudinal Study." The instrument, "task interdependence," concerns the relationships that arise among classroom teachers by virtue of their location with respect to one another in the workflow. The report presents the theory for the concept and details operational indicators for its measurement. Some initial findings on instructional organization, based on 28 Project mitt schools, are summarized. (Mlf)
