The conceptualization and measurement of variables at school level has been inadequately sensitive to the range of possible factors that may have effects. Most studies have used formal organizational factors but few of these, and few in total, have used the 'culture' of schooling in terms of teachers' attitudes, perceptions, goals, etc. The third dimension of school life is that of the psychological or psychosocial which is concerned with the relationships between individuals, and the 'psycho-history' of the patterns of relationships found.
Where studies have utilized multiple measures of outcome by the adoption of 'social' or 'affective' outcomes, it is noticeable that the numbers of school level variables that are associated with variation in outcomes are notably less for the social outcomes as compared to the academic outcomes, suggesting that we are not at the moment tapping the school variables (climate? emotional tone? ) necessary. The power of the instructional level as a determinant of outcomes has not been matched by the necessary reconceptualization of the nature of the school level.
