Summary
The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationships, if any, among teachers' perceptions of middle level principals' transformational leadership behaviors, teacher commitment, teacher collective efficacy, and student achievement in communication arts and mathematics. A second purpose was to determine if there were differences in teachers' perceptions of principal transformational leadership, teacher commitment, and teacher collective efficacy when sorting Missouri's middle level school by achievement quartiles. The population consisted of teachers and principals from 138 middle level schools in the state of Missouri. Quantitative data were collected using the Principal Leadership Questionnaire, the Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire, and the Collective Efficacy Scale. The study found that transformational leadership correlated with teacher commitment, teacher collective efficacy, and student achievement. Significant correlations existed between teacher commitment, teacher collective efficacy, and student achievement. Teacher collective efficacy and the transformational leadership factor of "individualized support" were predictors of communication arts achievement and teacher collective efficacy was a predictor of mathematics achievement. The transformational leadership factor of "goal acceptance" was a predictor of teacher commitment, while "vision identification" was a predictor of teacher collective efficacy. Finally, schools in the lowest achievement quartiles had significantly lower levels of teacher commitment and teacher collective efficacy than those in the highest quartiles
