The scale used to measure the sample responses was divided into three levels; Low level of QOWL with means ranging (1-2.33), average level of QOWL with means ranging (2.34-3.66) and high level of QOWL with means ranging (3.67-5.00).
Table 2 shows teachers' responses on the scale that measures level of QOWL among teachers.

Results of t-tests revealed no statistically significant mean differences between mainstreaming and special education school on QOWL seen by special education teachers (t = -1.700, p < .621).
Finally, a One-Way ANOVA was administered to determine if QOWL varied according to the level of education.
