Relating Training to Job Satisfaction: A Survey of Online Faculty Members
Hoekstra, Brian
Journal of Adult Education, v43 n1 p1-10 2014
The purpose of this study was to determine whether training affected the job satisfaction reported by online faculty members. A convenience sample of 492 Iowa Community College Online Consortium (ICCOC) faculty members were invited to participate in a quantitative survey, and 148 responded. Overall Job Satisfaction was operationalized through the use of the Index of Job Satisfaction (IJS), which was created by Brayfield and Rothe (1951). The study was unable to find a statistically significant relationship for Training either as a dichotomous variable (p = 0.463 > 0.05) or a continuous variable (p = 0.330 > 0.05) and Overall Job Satisfaction, controlling for age and gender.
