The purpose of this paper is to develop a measurement model in order to investigate sorts of organizational cultures (OCs) existing in school organizations.
This study involved 300 teachers of Primary Schools in the Malang City, East Java Indonesia. It used a quantitative approach with structural equation modelling to develop a measurement model of school OC. To enable the measure of this variable to work, OC scale was constructed and validated employing a confirmatory factor analysis.
Results suggest items of the scale are conceptualized as unidimensional measure. The scale, thus, could be used to examine and properly identified types of OCs within a school setting.
This study developed e-scale to measure OC within a school context. The measure was tested in referring to the data derived from a limited sample of primary school teachers in Malang City, Indonesia.
This study recommends that school principals are expected to create an OC to ensure the improvement of individual capacities is carried out effectively.
The investigation focused on a school OC as a complex project. Since not many research studies developed the scales to measure this specific cultural construct, the findings add to the theory in this area.
The topic discussed in this paper is based on one of the focuses from a research project funded by the Directorate General of Higher Education Indonesia in 2016. The author is grateful to the research team member, Sunarni, M.Pd and teachers who participated in responding to questions of the questionnaire. Leader of State University of Malang and Head of Research Development Centre are highly appreciated for supporting the author to conduct this study.
