Analysis of the Intrinsic and Extrinsic Stress Factors of K-12 Physical Education Teachers.
Evans, Virden; And Others
This study analyzed the effect of intrinsic and extrinsic job stressors on grades K through 12 physical education teachers. Perceived levels of stress were compared among physical education teachers when physical illness, psychological strain, and absenteeism were functions. Subjects were 47 physical education teachers randomly selected from the Florida public schools. Respondents were asked to complete a personal data sheet and a 50-item teacher stress inventory. The analysis of variance technique was used to analyze the data using three demographical variables. The demographical data served as the independent variables while the stress score (intrinsic and extrinsic) were the dependent variables. Results indicated that physical education teachers who experienced either physical illness or psychological strain during the school year had significantly higher levels of both intrinsic and extrinsic job-related stress than teachers who did not. Stress also appeared to be a significant factor among teachers who experienced excessive absenteeism from work. (Author/JD)
