Abstract

The study mainly focuses on assessing (a) the level job satisfaction and (b) whether the groups of a demographic factor have mean difference between them. The main objective of this study is to provide a basic idea of using T-test and ANOVA test. However, the survey results show that overall job satisfaction is at high level of attribute and little diluted with working environment. However, the results also show that demographic variables age, and qualification have no mean differences between the groups of each of them, except the gender, which implies that there is significant gender based difference in job satisfaction of teachers in the Eastern University, Sri Lanka.
