Background/Objectives: By recognizing team efficacy, interpersonal relationship, and activeness in problem solving as key factors affecting class satisfaction, this study seeks to investigate their causality in actual university team project-based classes. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this research, survey was performed to collect data. The total of 200 survey questionnaires was distributed during a break in the middle of class. Of them, 34 sets were excluded for missing response, plural response and lining of the same answer inappropriate for study research, leaving 166 sets for the final analysis. For this study research, IBM SPSS v22, IBM AMOS v22, and Microsoft Excel 2013 were utilized. Findings: As a result of this study, the attitude toward learning, team efficacy, and problem solving capability was found to have a positive effect on class satisfaction. Whereas interpersonal relationships showed no effect on class satisfaction, attitude toward learning and team efficacy showed a positive effect on interpersonal relationship and team efficacy showed an effect on problem solving capability. Interpersonal relationship and problem solving capability were found to function as a mediator among team efficacy, attitude toward learning and class satisfaction. Application/Improvements: Based on research results, interpersonal relationship is deemed most appropriate to improve problem solving capability. Also team efficacy and attitude toward learning were found to increase interpersonal relationship.
