Task 5: four hundred and sixty-seven lecturers completed
Task 5: Four hundred and sixty-seven lecturers completed questionnaire measures of
Burnout (burnt out or not), Perceived Control (high score = low perceived control),
Coping Style (high score = high ability to cope with stress), Stress from Teaching (high
score = teaching creates a lot of stress for the person), Stress from Research (high score
= research creates a lot of stress for the person) and Stress from Providing Pastoral Care
(high score = providing pastoral care creates a lot of stress for the person). Cooper, Sloan,
and Williams’ (1988) model of stress indicates that perceived control and coping style are
important predictors of burnout. The remaining predictors were measured to see the
unique contribution of different aspects of a lecturer’s work to their burnout. Conduct a
logistic regression to see which factors predict burnout. The data are in Burnout.sav.
HOWEVER, THE INSTRUCTOR HAS MODIFIED THESE INSTRUCTION.
Complete Smart Alex’s Task #5 on p. 812 of the Field text. Include only Burnout as the dependent variable and Coping Style and Stress from Teaching as the two independent variables. Report the odds ratio ONLY.
