The Leadership-Culture Dimensional Screening Scale (LCDSS) measures the relationship between frontier and settlement school cultures; transactional and transformational leadership styles; and the four work roles (supervisor, administrator, manager, and leader) formed by the intersection of the model's culture and leadership dimensions. This instrument was administered to 2 separate 700-subject samples of Illinois principals in prekindergarten through grade 8 schools. The instrument development process used Cronbach's alpha as one homogeneity reliability indicator along with exploratory factor analysis as a data-reduction technique. The final tool contains 60 items on 7 subscales, with alphas ranging from .76 to .84. Alpha for the overall tool is .90. LCDSS can be further refined to improve all alphas, particularly in the case of the transactional, supervisor, and manager scales. Although still in its formative stages, LCDSS may be used to measure transactional and transformational leadership as exhibited by school principals. Definition and application of the cultural dimension warrant further study. Several tables are appended. (Author)
