1. Muller, Lisa. Advancement Via Individual Determination in the Suburban High School: An Evaluation of the Jenks High School AVID Program.

Degree: EdD, 2014, University of Oklahoma

This program evaluation examines the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program at Jenks High School in Jenks, Oklahoma. AVID is a college readiness program designed to prepare underachieving high school students for college. Jenks High School began the planning phase for its AVID program in 2005-2006, with implementation beginning with a freshman cohort during the 2006-2007 school year. The program evaluation was designed to determine whether, through the program’s “eleven essential elements,” AVID creates an environment promoting the development of self-regulated learning behaviors among program participants. In addition, the evaluation considers the inputs provided by the school district, the fidelity with which the eleven essential elements have been implemented, the degree of self-regulated learning behaviors program participants exhibit, and the extent to which the desired outcomes of increased levels of participation in advanced coursework, higher rates of high school graduation, and increased enrollment in postsecondary education have been achieved. Advisors/Committee Members: Forsyth, Patrick (advisor), Adams, Curt (committee member), Edwards, Beverly (committee member), Garn, Gregg (committee member), Steinheider, Brigitte (committee member).

2. Okonkwo, Jovita. The Effects of Servant Leadership on the Socio-moral Climate of Catholic Parishes and the Spiritual Well-being of Followers.

Degree: PhD, 2015, University of Oklahoma

This study investigated the effects of followers’ perceived servant leadership orientation of their leaders on the socio-moral climate of organizations and the spiritual well-being of followers in a non-profit/religious setting. Data were collected from 354 parish staff and volunteers of 53 Catholic parishes in the dioceses of Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Structural equation modeling showed good fit indices for the hypothesized model. Results showed a strong relationship between servant leadership and socio-moral climate, as well as a direct positive relationship between servant leadership and spiritual well-being. Socio-moral climate was positively related to spiritual well-being. The effect of servant leadership on followers’ spiritual well-being was partially mediated by socio-moral climate. In addition, socio-moral climate moderated the relationship between servant leadership and spiritual well-being, indicating that the effect of servant leadership on spiritual well-being was higher when socio-moral climate was evaluated positively. This study contributes to a better understanding of how leadership can affect, directly and indirectly, followers’ well-being, and demonstrates the importance of the organizational context as a means to shape followers’ behavior and organizational outcomes.

3. Ackley, Kathryn. BUILDING TRUST AND EFFICACY THROUGH CRITICAL FRIENDS GROUPS: A PROCESS EVALUATION.

Degree: EdD, 2017, University of Oklahoma

Two ongoing challenges that schools face, particularly urban schools, are finding ways to develop and retain quality teachers and to contribute to student academic success. There are claims that collaborative structures, such as Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), can nurture teacher learning and job satisfaction, and overall school effectiveness. Additionally, research has shown both faculty trust in colleagues and perceived teacher collective efficacy to be correlated with student achievement. This dissertation evaluates the implementation of a particular type of collaborative learning community, called Critical Friends Groups (CFGs) and the relationship between effective CFGs and school levels of faculty trust in colleagues and teacher collective efficacy. CFGs are a particular kind of learning community that is set apart by the use of specific protocols and the leadership of a trained facilitator to guide collaborative work. The theory of action for this dissertation is based on Bandura’s social cognitive theory and posits that CFGs have the potential to create a social context for teacher learning within schools, in which faculty trust and collective efficacy are present. The following evaluation questions are addressed: 1. How do teachers in the district perceive the effectiveness of CFGs? 2. Is there a difference in the average CFG effectiveness across schools in the district? 3. Is there a relationship between teacher perceived CFG effectiveness and levels of Faculty Trust in Colleagues and Collective Teacher Efficacy? 4. What is known about the school climate for schools with different levels of teacher perceived CFG effectiveness? 5. In schools with high teacher perception of CFG effectiveness, what has contributed to the successful implementation of CFGs? This evaluation found that there is, in fact, a statistically significant relationship between teachers’ perceptions of the effectiveness of their CFGs and school levels of faculty trust in colleagues and teacher collective efficacy. Additionally, it found relationships between CFG effectiveness scores and other school climate variables associated with student success. Finally, it identified school leader behaviors that contributed to the successful implementation of CFGs. While the successful implementation of CFGs is dependent upon teacher ownership, the role of the school leader is critical as well. Implications for school leaders seeking to implement CFGs as a strategy for increasing trust and efficacy include a commitment of time for training and ongoing implementation of CFGs, as well as a need for patience to allow CFGs and the resulting trust and efficacy to develop over time.
