Abstract:Two unit districts in a suburban midwestern metropolitan area volunteered to participate in the study. Each supplied 60 teachers (30 elementary and 30 secondary) and their supervisors. The basic research question was to determine if cooperative-competitive attitudes affected the supervisory relationship.
Three instruments were used to gather data. A cooperative-competitive Likert-type measure, the Tuckman Teacher-Supervisor Feedback Form, and a teacher-supervisor success rating form were completed by the 120 dyads.
Four hypotheses were constructed. The first three were designed to measure the effect of cooperativeness or competitiveness by total sample, by grade level and by school district on supervision. The fourth sought the proportions of successful supervisory relationships from among cooperative and competitive dyads.
Results from t and F scores showed no significant relationships from the first three hypotheses. Exploratory data analysis disclosed no competitive dyads; however, highly significant chi-square scores were found among cooperative dyads by grade level and by school district (p < .01).
Research results were inconclusive. However, slight differences in cooperativeness may be associated with school district or grade level differences. The preponderance of cooperative scores has meaning for school climate and appropriate supervisory behaviors.
