THE INFLUENCE OF SELECTED PERSONAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLES ON THE QUALITY OF ELEMENTARY PRINCIPALS' ADMINISTRATIVE INTERNSHIPS
MetadataShow full item record
Surveys were sent to 400 elementary school principals across the United States. The dependent variable involvement was regressed on 17 personal and environmental independent variables using a stepwise regression procedure. Results of the stepwise multiple regression for total quality performed in this study indicated that 39% of the variation in overall internship quality was explained by the intern's belief that the internship was worthwhile, the intern's level of work-related responsibility, whether or not the intern was a part of a cohort during their principal preparation program, and the length of the administrative internship.
This study should be beneficial to colleges, universities, and other entities and individuals who are interested in the development of effective administrative internships in principal preparation programs.
