ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to analyze the validity and reliability of the construction of job satisfaction, and to find dimensions and indicators that can shape the construction of job satisfaction. The data collection method used a scale of job satisfaction. The scale of job satisfaction is measured by five dimensions, namely pay, work itself, coworkers, promotions, and supervision. The subjects in this study were 60 teachers who worked at the "X" elementary school in Tenggarong. Sampling used a random sampling technique. Data in this study were analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) SmartPLS 3.2.8 with reflective construction through CFA 2nd Order. Based on the results of the analysis of constructive validity and reliability, the dimensions and indicators that make up job satisfaction for teachers are declared valid and reliable. All dimensions and indicators can significantly form the construction of job satisfaction.
