Abstract

A total 70 comparisons plus 70 reoccurring comparisons were made. Of the 70 comparisons made 20 were main effects. Of the 20 main effects 8 were statistically significant. The following main effects were statistically significant at the .05 level: 1. gender for the dependent variable Instructional Leadership, 2. position for the dependent variable Instructional Leadership, 3. gender for the dependent variable School Management, 4. size of district for the dependent variable Student Management, 5. gender for the dependent variable Composite, 6. size of district for the dependent variable Composite, 7. position for the dependent variable composite, and 8. position for the dependent variable Student Management. Of the 50 interactions three were statistically significant at the .05 level; the following interactions were statistically significant: 1. the independent variables gender and size of district for the dependent variable Student Management, 2. the independent variables gender and position for the dependent variable Student Management, and 3. The independent variables gender and size of district for the dependent variable composite. The results of the present study appear to support the following generalization: 1. females rated the role and function of Instructional Leadership higher than males, 2. high school principals rated the role and function of Instructional Leadership higher than teachers, 3. females rated the role and functions of School Management higher than males, 4. participants from district size 4 (6-56) rated the role and function of Student Management higher than those from size 2 (143-520) and those from district size 2 (143-520) rated it higher than those for district size 1 (530-2,125), 5. females rated the roles and functions of the high school principal higher than males, 6. participants from district sizes 3 (56-14 3) and 4 (6 - 56) rated the roles and functions of the high school principal higher than district size 1 (530-2,125) 7. high school principals rated the roles and functions of the high school principal higher than high school teachers, 8. high school principals rated Student Management higher than high school teachers, 9. no association between age and viewpoints concerning roles and functions of the high school principal, 10. significant interactions for gender and size of district and the dependent variable Student Management, 11 . significant interactions for gender and position, and the dependent variable Student Management, and 12. significant interactions for gender and size of district and the dependent variable composite.
