Although several different measures have been developed to assess job satisfaction, large-scale examinations of the psychometric properties of most satisfaction scales are generally lacking. In the current study we used meta-analysis to examine the construct validity of the Michigan Organizational Assessment Questionnaire Job Satisfaction Subscale (MOAQ-JSS; [Cammann, C., Fichman, M., Jenkins, D., & Klesh, J. (1979). "The Michigan Organizational Assessment Questionnaire." Unpublished manuscript, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; Cammann, C., Fichman, M., Jenkins, G. D., & Klesh, J. (1983). "Michigan Organizational Assessment Questionnaire." In S. E. Seashore, E. E. Lawler, P. H. Mirvis, & C. Cammann (Eds.), "Assessing organizational change: A guide to methods, measures, and practices" (pp. 71-138). New York: Wiley-Interscience]), which is a brief, face-valid measure of global job satisfaction. Our analyses indicate that the MOAQ-JSS is a reliable and construct-valid measure of job satisfaction. We also report normative data for the MOAQ-JSS. (Contains 1 figure and 5 tables.)
