Self-Efficacy and Performance Ratings of Preservice Teachers in the Area of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders.
Bettenhausen, Sherrie; Rogers, Elisabeth Lodge
This investigation examined the relationship between personal efficacy ratings of preservice teachers seeking licensure in the area of emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) and performance ratings by their practicum supervisors. Forty-five teachers completing the Emotional Behavioral Disorders practicum at the University of Minnesota were asked to complete the Teacher Efficacy Scale, which measures personal efficacy and the teacher's sense of teaching efficacy. No significant differences were found between personal efficacy and teacher ratings. No differences were found between male and female teachers, elementary and secondary teachers, or type of practicum placement. The findings of this study yielded contrary results to prior research in teacher efficacy. Given the unique challenges faced by EBD teachers, studies examining the differences between these teachers and regular education teacher ratings of personal efficacy are suggested.
