Examination of the Relationships between Perceived Teaching Potential, Commitment, and Efficacy and Performance, Satisfaction, Preparation, Career Orientation, and Academic Ability.
Kemis, Mari R.; Warren, Richard D.
The present study extends a previous study of student teachers' teaching potential to first-year teachers and includes variables addressing commitment to a teaching career and efficacy. Respondents consisted of 126 first-year teachers who completed questionnaires at student teaching, graduation, and one year following graduation. Seven tables are included in the document. Table 1 and 2 define all variables used in the analysis and correlate potential, commitment and efficacy. Tables 3-7 examine correlations between potential, commitment, and efficacy and: performance at student teaching and as a first year teacher; satisfaction at graduation and as a first year teacher; academic indicators; variables related to preparation; and career orientation variables. The results suggest that for first year teachers commitment to teaching as a professional career and efficacy appear to be highly related to confidence in abilities, as well as to satisfaction. (LL)
