Job Satisfaction of Alaska School Superintendents and Its Comparison with the Nationwide American Superintendency. Report of a Study.
Chand, Krishan
A survey of Alaska's 52 school superintendents revealed that their levels of satisfaction in several aspects of their jobs were affected by several task variables, in contrast to the findings of an earlier nationwide study. A personal-experiential instrument, a task variables instrument, and the Job Descriptive Index were used to obtain data. These data were subjected to canonical correlation analysis and multiple regression/correlation analysis. The study found 21 task variables that were related to the Alaskan superintendents' overall job satisfaction, 10 variables related to work satisfaction, 4 variables related to satisfaction with coworkers, 9 variables related to satisfaction with the way superintendents were supervised, and 5 variables related to satisfaction with pay. No significant relationships were found between either personal-experiential variables or demographic characteristics and job satisfaction. A survey of the literature is included in the paper, and appendices present the personal-experiential and task variable survey instruments. A bibliography of over 100 items concludes the document.
