The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationships among graduate students' satisfaction, self-assessment of progress, and research achievements in engineering laboratories. In this study, we conducted a random sampling survey of engineering laboratories in universities and collected data from 73 laboratories. Since the data collected in this study is multilevel data including individual and group (laboratory) levels, we divided the data into "Within model" (model of an individual level) and "Between model" (model of a group level) and calculated the correlation coefficients. The results of the analysis indicate the following: (1) At a group level, forcing graduates to publish refereed reports of their laboratory achievements would positively correlate with their academic communication, but negatively correlate with their satisfaction with regard to laboratory education. (2) At a group level, making graduate students participate in joint research would positively correlate with satisfaction in laboratory education and self-assessment of progress.
