Expectancy Work Motivation, Central Life Interests, Voluntarism, Organizational Situation, Job Satisfaction, and Perceived Teaching Performance.
Miskel, Cecil; And Others
This study tested the hypotheses that expectancy work motivation, individual attitudes toward work, and structural and environmental components are predictions of teacher job satisfaction and effectiveness. Samples were selected from junior high school and higher education faculties. Subjects responded to open-ended questionnaires, and results were analyzed. Job satisfaction for both groups was predicated by expectancy motivation, voluntarism, central life interests, and similar job assignment variables. Expectancy motivation and complexity factors were predictors of perceived job performance. Findings suggest that expectancy motivation potentially is an important model for understanding the individual educator. (Authors/JD)
