Faculty Satisfaction Questionnaire: Development, Validity, and Reliability.
Serafin, Ana Gil
This study sought to design and test a survey instrument which examined college faculty satisfaction with their roles of teaching, research, and service. A panel of experts reviewed the Spanish and English versions of the 39 item survey for quality of items and grammatical accuracy. Thirty randomly selected faculty members from a population of 234 faculty at the Universidad Pedagogica Experimental Libertador (UPEL) of Venezuela participated in the field testing with 22 responding, or 73.3 percent. Results indicated a high level of validity and reliability for all three categories, teaching (r=.85), research (r=.80) and service (r=.85). Further research established the reliability of the measures by testing 207 more faculty from UPEL with similar results (teaching: r=.76; research: r=.68; and service: r=.83). A copy of the instrument evaluation form and English and Spanish versions of the survey form are appended. (17 references) (JB)
