A Profile of Job Satisfaction for Graduate Physical Education Faculty Members in the United States of America
Roy Chin-Ming CNAN（陳展鳴）
The purpose of the present investigation was to develop a profile of graduate physical education faculty members in terms of job satisfaction, and to compare the top-20 ranked physical education departments against 20 other randomly selected physical education departments. Results did not identify a set of variables that was consistently related to job satisfaction. However, correlations revealed that among all factors, only salary consistently produced significant relationships with all six aspects of job satisfaction, suggesting that higher paid faculty members were more satisfied. The factor "hours of teaching" also showed a consistent relationship with job satisfaction, although not to the extent of salary, suggesting that faculty members who taught less hours were more satisfied. Finally, results indicated that faculty were most dissatisfied with pay among all six aspects of satisfaction. Univariate analysis of variance revealed that overall satisfaction and pay satisfaction of the top-20 departments' faculty members were significantly higher than non-top-20 departments' faculty members, although the actual pay between the top-20 and non-top-20 departments was not significantly different.
