Job effectiveness and satisfaction among non-university teachers: review of an assessment instrument


Considering the development of the Social-Cognitive theory carried out by A. Bandura, this article is aimed at analyzing the characteristics of an instrument used to assess the satisfaction among teachers of primary and secondary schools, and its relationship with the beliefs or perceptions about the effectiveness of their working environment. To this end, we selected a sample made up of 500 nonuniversity teachers (250 from primary education and 250 from secondary education) from schools in the Autonomous Community of Galicia. The subjects were asked to fill in a questionnaire made up of 43 closed-category questions in Likert scale format. Two confirmatory factorial analyses were performed in order to check whether the factorial structure of the scale was the expected one according to its size, which led us to a 13-item scale with a good reliability (a=.958) and validity. Moreover, the results and proper adjustment that we obtained allow us to establish a very rough framework of the influence relations between the different dimensions proposed by the final model.
