Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify whether demographics, experience, assignment method or any combination of the three may be seen as predicting occasional teacher effectiveness and/or satisfaction in their daily placements. A more developed understanding of such predictive relationships may lead to an increase in perceived effectiveness from both the view point of the occasional teachers themselves and the classroom teachers whom they replace. As well, this study aims to provide insight into what factors contribute to occasional teachers' job satisfaction. The three most important findings from this study are: the significant relationship the average number of days worked per week has with effectiveness, the significant relationship that the number of years worked as an occasional teacher has with effectiveness and the significant relationship age has with satisfaction.
