A Study on Transformational Leadership for Senior High School Principals: An Institutional Research Approach

Shu-Fang Lin, Baisu Takiludun, and Hung-Chang Chang
Abstract—This study explores the content of Institutional Research (IR) and its application on transformational leadership for school principals. The study conducted a case study of a senior high school in Taiwan to explore the application of empirical results of IR on practicing transformational leadership. On the ground of a three-aspect literature review of senior high school institutional work, IR, and school principal transformational leadership, the study employed QlikView, a business intelligence exploration software, to analyze student data of enrollment, learning achievement, and absenteeism in a senior high school. The study asked two research questions: (1) how to conduct an empirical IR based on institutional data of a senior high school? (2) how does a senior high school principal apply the empirical results of IR to practice transformational leadership? Based on the aforementioned empirical results of IR, the study delved into meanings behind statistic figures, and attempted to retrace possible origins of problems. The study hopes to demonstrate a practical model of decision making grounded on IR and empirical results of a high school principal and contribute to pave the way to transformational leadership of institutes.

Index Terms—Institutional research (IR), senior high school, secondary education, transformational leadership.
