Professors Christopher Day, Qing Gu & Pam Sammons have been presented with this Award for a paper in the Educational Administration Quarterly, the most prestigious American journal in that area, at the Division A meeting of AERA this year.
They are the first English academics to receive it since its establishment in 1979.
The William J. Davis Award is given annually to the author(s) of the most outstanding article published in Educational Administration Quarterly (EAQ) during the preceding volume year. The article selection is made by a three-member panel chosen from the EAQ Editorial Board members who have not published in the volume being reviewed.
The award-winning paper is: Day, C; Gu, Q; & Sammons, P. (2016) The Impact of Leadership on Student Outcomes: How Successful School Leaders Use Transformational and Instructional Strategies to Make a Difference. Educational Administration Quarterly 52 (2), 221-258.
