Teachers’ work motivation is critical in achieving the outcomes of the National Education Philosophy, but the level of teachers’ work has not encouraged. Apart from that, previous researches found that the relationships between teachers’ work motivation and the elements of teaching were not consistent. Therefore, this study aims to explore the influence of teaching job characteristics on teachers’ psychological states and teachers’ work motivation and to determine the level of teaching job characteristics. A total of 497 teachers from 20 secondary schools in Kedah were selected using the clustering sampling technique. Work Design Questionnaire (WDQ) and the Job Diagnostics Survey (JDS) were utilized in this study. Using regression analysis, the results of this study found that skill variety, task significance and task identity did influence the experienced of the work. Task significance and task identity also did influence the experience of the work and teachers work motivation. More over task significance and feedback from the job did influence the knowledge of the actual results of the work activities. Meanwhile, all the dimensions of the psychological states did influence the teachers’ work motivation. Apart from that, the findings showed that, work experience and experience responsibility were significant mediator of the relationships between task significance and work motivation of teachers. The study also found that knowledge of the actual results of the work activities mediated on the relationship between skill variety, task significance and feedback from the job with teachers’ work motivation. The results showed that teachers perceived that the five dimensions of teaching job characteristics were between the high and medium-high level. The findings of the study contributed to the development of the job characteristics and work motivation theories in the context of Malaysian teachers. This study suggested that in understanding teachers work motivation, the teaching job characteristics and psychological states must be addressed.
