Abstract

This study was designed to assess the structure of the Maslach Burnout Inventory for 218 Jordanian and 162 Emirati teachers. LISREL was used to test the invariance of factor structure across the two Middle Eastern samples. Coefficients alpha were computed for the three subscales of the inventory for the samples. The results indicated that the parameter estimates were invariant across the two samples; however, not all factor correlations were invariant. Factor correlations of Jordanian teachers were larger than those of the Emirati teachers. Coefficients alpha ranged between .71 and .84 for the Jordanians and between .68 and .83 for the Emiratis. The inventory appears to be valid and reliable for nonWestern teachers as well as Western teachers.
