Question: “To what extent do you feel supported by your principal?”
Answers: “To a great extent” (10 pts), “to some extent” (6.7 pts) “to a small extent” (3.3 pts) or “to no extent” (0 pts).
Score: based on average response. 
Percent: based on percent of answers “to a great extent” or “to some extent.”
