Need Achievement and Need Fulfillment Deficiencies as They Affect Educators' Promotional Aspirations: Analysis of Sex, Race, Role, and Experience Factors.
Chisolm, Grace Butler
This study examines motivational, personalistic, and experiential variables considered to be important in explaining the promotional aspirations of educators. It assesses the extent to which aspirations are affected by such factors as motivation (or need fulfillment deficiency), personal attributes (sex or race), and experience (professional role or years of experience). The direction and magnitude of relations that exist among criterion and predictor variables were analyzed. Maslow's hierarchy of needs and Atkinson's need achievement concept were the theoretical constructs of the study. Subjects for the study were teachers, potential administrators, and practicing administrators from selected New York City Community School Districts. Instruments used were the Mehrabian Achieving Tendency Scales, Porter's Need Satisfaction Questionnaire, and the Personal Data Form. (Author/JM)
