The Positive School Culture Inventory ™ (PSCI ™): Purpose, Rationale, and Development

An analysis of data of more than 152,000,000 observable student behavior instances collected by educators in 645 schools over seven years enabled researchers to identify the most essential behaviors in creating a positive school climate, producing the Positive School Culture Inventory™ (PSCI™).

Examining the relationship between the PSCI™ scores and their positivity ratios researchers discovered schools that logged greater than 20 percent of behaviors from the PSCI™ had a positivity ratio between 67 percent and 90 percent. In contrast, schools logging less than 10 percent of the student behaviors from the PSCI™ had a wide range of positivity scores and much lower positivity ratios overall.
