Abstract

Background of the study: Leadership is needed when one must deal with education management which means the relationship of influence between the leader and followers who have the same goal, to make a change. It can be used as a guideline in the planning and creating evaluation criteria to improve the adaptive leadership of teachers at Boromarajonani College of Nursing which consistent with the theory and the research result as well as the vision from scholars and organization. Objective: The objectives of this research were to (a) develop a theoretical model of structural relationship of major components, minor components and indicators of adaptive leadership, (b) test the fitness of the model was developed from theoretical model and empirical data, and (c) verify the factor loading value of the major components, minor components and indicators. Materials and Methods: The descriptive research collected by using the 5-level rating scale questionnaire. The population consisted of 1,740 teachers in Boromarajonani college of nursing under Boromarajchanok Institute. The data analysis using AMOS statistical program was done with the 617-return questionnaire. Results: The results showed that the theoretical model was consistent with empirical data with the following statistical metrics: relative Chi-square (CMIN/DF) < 3.00, root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA) < 0.05, goodness-of-fit index (GFI), adjusted goodness-of-fit index (AGFI), comparative fit index (CFI), and normed fit index (NFI) 0.90-1.00 were in accordance with the criteria from both the first and second order of confirmative factor analysis. The major components had factor loading ranging from 0.71 to 1.00, which is higher than the criterion as 0.70. The minor components and indicators had factor loading are higher than the criterion as 0.30. Conclusion: The finding can be used as a guideline in the planning and creation of evaluation criteria to improve the adaptive leadership of teachers at Boromarajonani College of Nursing which is consistent with the theory and research results as well as the vision from scholars and organization. This will help improve the performance efficiency of the teachers at Boromarajonani College of Nursing which will affect the education management and education improvement.
