Participants: Linking Collaborative Leadership Practices to Increased Student Achievement Pamela M. VanHorn, Ohio State University This study explores how the implementation of a collaborative leadership model across a school district predicts changes in student achievement. VanHorn & VanHorn (2014) developed a survey to measure the fidelity and level of implementation of the Ohio Improvement Process; a research based collaborative improvement process (OIP). The survey identifies principal perceptions of OIP implementation within their school and district. Multi-level regression analysis is used to explore the influence of collaborative leadership on student achievement. Teacher Perception of Attributes Related to Teaching Effectiveness in Urban Schools Meredith Lea Wronowski, University of Oklahoma This study was conducted to determine what attributes urban teachers believe are necessary for effective teaching in an urban, high needs school. Three latent constructs, Growth and Adaptability, Professional Teaching Skills, and Relationships with Students, were identified using EFA and CFA. MANOVA indicated overall differences on the set of attributes among teachers of different demographics including teachers at different career stages and different routes to teacher certification. Implications for school leaders are also discussed. The School Leaders' Role in Students' Mathematics Achievement Through the Lens of Complexity Theory (GSS) Emma Bullock, Utah State University This explanatory sequential mixed methods study, utilizing both survey (N=250) and focus group (N=24) data from K-12 principals in a mid-western state, serves to inform current school leaders, and future research, on aspects of school leadership through the lens of complexity theory, including the use of the School Leadership in a Complex Adaptive System (SL-CAS) Framework to understand the role school leaders play in students’ mathematics achievement. Facilitator: Scott Christopher McLeod, University of Colorado-Denver
