Bennett, Robert Leslie, "The Relationship Between the Average Number of Principal Walkthroughs and School Accountability Grade of Florida High Schools" (2020). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 2537.
This quantitative correlational study sought to determine if the administrative time and financial investment in administrative walkthroughs is an effective practice that leads to improved student achievement. This study sought to determine if a predictive relationship existed between the predictor variable mean of principal school-wide walkthroughs, and the criterion variable school grade in Florida high schools. This study was designed to determine if the principal walkthrough is an effective tool to improve teaching practice to improve student achievement to meet accountability measures. The sample include 72 high school principals in Florida. Data was collected through a self-report survey in which the respondents answered three questions. Archival data from the Florida Department of Education was used to determine school grade by percent. A bivariate regression was used to determine the relationship between predictor variable mean of walkthroughs and criterion variable school achievement grade.
