The survey was conducted using Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI). This LPI contains 30 statements that are associated with each of the five exemplary practices of exemplary leadership which uses a five point Likert scale. This is an instrument that was developed through triangulation of qualitative and quantitative research methods and studies (Posner, 2015). Though for this survey, I used the five point Likert scale, the instrument has however been reformulated into a more robust and sensitive ten point Likert scale. The anchors for the new scale include (1) Almost never do what is described in the statement ; (2)Rarely ; (3) Seldom ; (4)Once in a while ; (5)Occasionally ; (6)Sometimes ; (7)fairly often ;(8) Usually ; (9)very frequently…show more content…

There is need for testing for both reliability (Polit & Beck, 2012), and validity Hagan (2014) by ensuring that indeed leadership practices were being measured to ensure that the scales used are consistent and accurate in measuring leadership practices. I would need to take the same test using a different representative sample or even using the same sample after some time through test-retest in order to measure its consistency. Reliability must be addressed before addressing validity since there can be no validity without reliability (Kimberlin & Winterstein, 2008). By using Cronbach’s alpha and picking values of at least 0.7 i would be able to identify the extent of internal consistency or lack of it and thus know whether to improve the scale of measurement or use it as it
