Qualitative Evaluation of Teaching Service, Subject Teacher Line, KULT-A.
Eriksson, Karl Henrik
School Research Newsletter, n 20 Oct 1974
This bulletin describes a project that identifies factors influencing qualified subject teachers' self-perceived satisfaction and professional self-realization to make improvements in the school of education training system. Two instruments were used in this study: a test called "Teachers Today" and a questionnaire. The test, based on teachers' quotations concerning their duties, was constructed to cover factors relating to job satisfaction and contentment and to opportunities for developing ideas and initiatives in the course of work. This instrument contains evaluative aspects, including the degree of acceptance or rejection of the quotations and evaluation of the professional importance of the problem, expressed by ratings on a 4-point scale. The questionnaire, based on inventories of factors relevant to the teaching profession, concerns working conditions and job satisfaction in the profession. These instruments were administered after each school year for three years. Group discussions were also used to follow up on qualified teachers who have taken part in former studies. A plan is being drawn up for processing this interview material. (A diagram is included to illustrate the general disposition of the project.) (PD)
