The Stability and Reliability of a Modified Work Components Study Questionnaire in the Educational Organization.
Miskel, Cecil; Heller, Leonard E.
The investigation attempted to establish the factorial validity and reliability of an industrial selection device based on Herzberg's theory of work motivation related to the school organization. The questionnaire was reworded to reflect an educational work situation; and a random sample of 197 students, 118 administrators, and 432 teachers was made. Statistical procedures included varimax and maxplane factor analysis and Cronbach's item analysis. Six stable factors composed of 56 items with reliabilities ranging from .73-.83 were isolated. Finally, the theoretical basis and similar psychometric properties in different organizational types are indicative of versatility for probing many provocative relationships related to work motivation.
