by Epperson, Raymond H., Ed.D., Northern Illinois University, 2018, 198; 10977345
Abstract (Summary)

This dissertation study explores the association between principal leadership behavior and school climate with an end goal of impacting student achievement. Certified staff members in a large suburban Illinois school district were involved in this study. Data were collected through the use of the Leadership Behavior Description Questionnaire Form XII (LBDQ Form XII) and the Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire (elementary OCDQ–RE, middle OCDQ–RM, and high school OCDQ–RS). All of the 10 leadership domains examined in this study showed statistically significant associations with various school climate areas. The leadership behaviors of Consideration, Integration, and Tolerance of Freedom were found to have the strongest correlations consistently across levels.
