COGNITIVE ACCURACY AND JOB SATISFACTION IN THE TEACHING PROFESSION.
TITUS, SUE
THE OBJECT OF THIS THESIS WAS TO ESTABLISH A RELATIONSHIP WHICH WOULD SHOW INDICATIONS OF TEACHER SATISFACTION TO BE DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL TO ACCURATE INTERPRETATION, OR COGNITION, OF NORMS AND EXPECTATIONS HELD BY PUBLIC SCHOOL OFFICIALS. DATA WERE DRAWN FROM A LARGER STUDY DONE BY BIDDLE AND ASSOCIATES IN 1961. IN A TEST SAMPLE OF 68 TEACHERS, A POSITIVE ANSWER TO THE PROPOSITION OF SELECTING THE SAME PROFESSION WAS CONSIDERED THE MAJOR INDICATION OF JOB SATISFACTION. BOTH A MANN-WHITNEY AND A SIGN TEST WERE USED TO EVALUATE THE FINDINGS. HOWEVER, NO SIGNIFICANT CAUSAL RELATIONSHIP COULD BE ESTABLISHED BETWEEN COGNITIVE ACCURACY AND TEACHER SATISFACTION. (PM)
