Abstract:

Research was conducted to establish the effects of number of people directly supervised and highest educational level obtained on three criteria of effectiveness i.e., climate, satisfaction, and perceived productivity. Data were collected on 4786 military and civilian personnel located at five Air Force bases using the Organizational Assessment Package OAP. Two separate one-way ANOVAs were used to test for differences between the number of people directly supervised by subjects and differences associated with the highest educational level obtained. Number of people supervised differed significantly with larger numbers supervised having higher values on all three criteria. Educational levels differed significantly on the criteria with high school graduates reporting lower values for climate and job satisfaction while doctoral degree subjects reported the lowest values for perceived productivity.
