CA 670, Aitken8 Kouzes and Posner Exemplary Leadership Overall, it is difficult to ignore the combined views of 75,000 people.
CA 670, Aitken9 Model the way Going first, living the behaviors you want others to adopt. This is leading from the front. People will believe not what they hear leaders say but what they see leader consistently do.
CA 670, Aitken10 Inspire a shared vision People are motivated most not by fear or reward, but by ideas that capture their imagination. Note that this is not so much about having a vision, but communicating it so effectively that others take it as their own.
CA 670, Aitken11 Challenge the process Leaders thrive on and learn from adversity and difficult situations. They are early adopters of innovation.
CA 670, Aitken12 Enable others to act Encouragement and exhortation is not enough. People must feel able to act and then must have the ability to put their ideas into action.
CA 670, Aitken13 Encourage the heart People act best of all when they are passionate about what they are doing. Leaders unleash the enthusiasm of their followers this with stories and passions of their own.
CA 670, Aitken14 Basic concepts of statistical analysis and measurement for course survival. No, there is no relevance to this picture except my concession that statistics and measurement may be hazardous to your sense of humor.
CA 670, Aitken15 Examples of Measurement Error Using instruments in the assessment process solely because those instruments are stipulated by the organization or an administrator(s). Regularly using instruments for purposes other than those for which test have been validated. Using the quickest instruments available even though those instruments may not assess the areas of concern.
More errors Using currently popular instruments for assessment. Failing to establish effective rapport with the examinee. Failing to adhere to standardized administration rules. Making various scoring errors. CA 670, Aitken16
CA 670, Aitken17 What are numerical scales? Nominal scale consists of numbers used only for identification purposes (numbers that cannot be used in mathematical operations such as your student ID). Ordinal scale uses rank (does not have the quality of equidistant units). Interval scale are equidistant units (numbers that cannot be used in mathematical operations). Ratio scale does have an absolute zero and can be used in mathematical operations.
CA 670, Aitken18 What are descriptive statistics? Descriptive statistics are used to organize and describe data. Measures of central tendency are statistical methods for observing how data cluster around the mean.
Mean The mean is the average, which can be affected by an extreme score, especially if the group is composed of only a few people. CA 670, Aitken19
CA 670, Aitken20 Mode Mode is the most frequently occurring score in a set of scores.
