dc.description.abstractThe problem: This study was developed to examine and determine the relationship between self-esteem and length of time in an administrative position among school administrators of the Des Moines Independent Community School District. Procedure. One hundred seventy-eight Des Moines independent Community School District Administrators were administered questionnaires and the "Tennessee Self Concept Scale". The questionnaire gathered demographic information and identified administrators' interests in seeking change of administrative levels. The "Tennessee Self Concept Scale" identified administrators' levels of self-esteem. The relationship between self-esteem and length of time in an administrative position was statistically analyzed through the use of partial correlations and stepwise multiple regression. Predictor variables of self-esteem were statistically controlled. Findings. One significant relationship between levels of self-esteem and length of time in vice principals' positions was determined: no significant relationships were identified in the three major administrative groups addressed. The results did not indicate a significant relationship between self-esteem and length of time in an administrative position of school administrators who were interested in seeking change in administrative levels and believed it likely to be obtained; school administrators who were interested in seeking change and believe it not likely to be obtained; and school administrators who were not interested in seeking change. Conclusions. There is no significant relationship between self-esteem and length of time in an administrative position of school administrators in the Des Moines Independent Community School District. Recomendations. Additional research concerning the means for determining the subscales scores of the "Tennessee Self Concept Scale" should be performed. Further research should be performed concerning the relationship of self-esteem and length of time in a vice principal's position, Duplicate this study with a larger population selected from a broader population base.en
