It describes how to take the first steps to understand and evaluate organizations as social systems. To hold schools meaningfully accountable for their students healthy growth, we must assess the healthiness of their learning environments as revealed by their members morale, culture, and effectiveness in achieving their mission goals--typically interpersonal and ethical ones. The technical manual has three partws. Part Is commentaries are keyed to issues discussed in Morale, Culture, and Character. Part II reports the methods, procedures, and norms for understanding schools as social systems. Part III provides the opportunity to apply what has been learned to understand four different schools and colleges. To take the initial steps to become an institutional diagnostician, it is essential to understand the applications of the methods as reported in Morale, Culture, and Character on which Assessing Schools of Hope depends. The manual is 8 1/2 x 11, has 57 tables, describes 7 methods, presents 18 norms, and one scoring manual for coding spontaneous essays about change in school or college.
