Survey-Feedback-Instrument zur Organisationsdiagnose an Schulen
As an instrument for organisational diagnosis in schools, ODAS was developed as a survey feedback instrument that enables a screening of the relevant dimensions of the school organisation and can thus be the basis for school organisational development measures, profile building and school programme development. ODAS consists of an interview guideline for a discussion with the school management, in which objective data about the school is collected and a possible adaptation of the questionnaires to the school is discussed, and of questionnaire versions for teachers, students and parents (at least 75 questions, including a further 36 questions for teachers). Reliability: The internal consistencies of the scales are at Cronbach's Alpha = .64-.87. Validity: In addition to ensuring content validity through expert discussions during item construction, a communicative validation took place during data feedback and in subsequent discussions with school members. With regard to construct validity, the results of the exploratory factor analysis prove that heterogeneous areas are covered and meaningful factors result. Norms: Comparative data from other schools can be obtained.
