Instructional Quality Survey (IQS)
Sample Printouts

The Instructional Quality Survey (IQS) assesses the staff's perception of how well the school stacks up against 13 traits of "effective schools", including program goals and objectives, expectations for students, coordination among programs, parent and community involvement, staff development, leadership, instruction, academic learning time, monitoring student progress, feedback and reinforcement, school and classroom climate, recognizing excellence and using evaluation results.

A computer program analyzes IQS data and prints out summary results for four groups: total school, teachers, classified staff, and administration. Each group's printout displays both "standard" and "rank order" lists of ratings for the 13 traits identified with "effective schools." The computer program also generates lists of category mean scores and item mean scores showing the results for all four groups side by side. Four different sample printouts for the IQS are listed below...

Scoring Notes . . .

1. Survey results are reported as MEAN SCORES.
2. A MEAN is computed for each item.
3. A category MEAN is the mean of the applicable item MEANs.
4. The total MEAN is the mean of the thirteen category MEANs.
5. The scoring procedure conforms to that suggested by the
   Rural Technical Assistance Center of the RMC Research Corp.,
   developers of the original instrument.

Printouts . . .

1. ERC-IQS.EXE makes four one-page group printouts (Sample#2) each
   showing standard order and rank order lists for one group, namely
   a. Total Staff
   b. Teacher/Certified
   c. Support/Classified
   d. Administration

2. ERC-IQS.EXE prints a one-page list of mean category scores 
   (Sample#3)in standard order for all groups side-by-side.

3. ERC-IQS.EXE prints a one-page list of mean item scores
   (Sample#4)for all four groups side-by-side.

Printout #2 of 4: The sample printout that appears below shows mean category scores for the Total Staff both in "standard order" and in "rank order." Similar printouts are also generated for the Certificated Staff, the Classified Staff and the Administrators.
