relevant to dental hygiene administrators and those for
which validity was established through field testing.

Validity. Documentation of validity was provided
through the administration of the instrument to 63 allied
health faculty at three community colleges and 22 nursing
faculty from one university. This population was selected
for field administration as they were discipline related
and similar in size and organizational composition to the
population being studied. The instrument was found to be
valid by this test population as only nine nonapplicable
responses were reported.

Demographic Survey
A demographic survey (Appendix 6) which included age,

sex, race, level of education, and major, present
position, years in present position, other work experience
and duration, and a listing of administrative/leadership
training was also completed by the respondents. The
demographic variables included met the requirements of the
study and were found to account for differences in results
in similar studies. Peer analysis of the demographic data
sheet was performed by doctoral students enrolled in the
doctoral seminar and the advanced research class at East
Tennessee State University. The instrument was accepted
as being valid for the study.

Data Collection Procedures
Population

The population included all program directors and
full-time faculty of the 201 accredited dental hygiene
programs in the United States. These programs were
identified from the September 19, 1988 American Dental
Hygienists' Association (ADHA) listing of dental hygiene
schools.

Sample Selection
Thirty-two programs (15.9%) were randomly selected

from the ADHA listing to participate in the study. The
sample was drawn using a table of random numbers which
were coordinated with the randomly numbered listing
provided by the ADHA.

Procedure
Permission to conduct the study was obtained from the

Institutional Review Board of East Tennessee State
University. The administrator and designated faculty
coordinator from each of the programs selected to
participate in the study were contacted by phone to elicit
cooperation. Following the phone contact, a letter
explaining the purpose of the study was sent to the
administrator and faculty coordinator at each
participating program (Appendix H). Included under the
