Psychometric Properties of Persian Translation of School Culture Survey
The objective of this study was to determine psychometric properties of a Persian translation of Gruenert’s School Culture Survey in a population of elementary school teachers. This instrument is to assess the extent a school culture is perceived collaborative by teachers. In order to determine psychometric properties of the tool Cronbach’s alpha was employed in testing the reliability and confirmatory factor analysis to assess construct validity. The results confirmed that the six-factor model of school culture including collaborative leadership, collegial support, learning partnership, professional development, teacher collaboration, and unity of purpose fit the data.
