Validity and Reliability of the Maslach Burnout Inventory for a Coaching Population.
Lemke, Mark A.
The factorial validity and reliability of the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) (C. Maslach and S. Jackson, 1982) for use with coaching populations at educational institutions was investigated. A sample of 199 college basketball coaches served as subjects for the study. The coaches completed a demographic data sheet and a modified version of the Educators Survey version of the MBI. The responses to the MBI were subjected to a factor analysis and Cronbach's alpha test for reliability. The results indicate that the three-factor model of burnout that had been repeatedly demonstrated in other populations for the MBI was only partially applicable to college basketball coaches. The use of this modified form of the instrument with college coaches, using the current scoring system, should be questioned. (Contains 3 tables and 13 references.) (Author/SLD)
