An Extension Analysis on the Self-Efficacy Beliefs about Equitable Science Teaching and Learning Instrument for Prospective Elementary Teachers.
Ritter, Jennifer M.; Boone, William J.; Rubba, Peter A.
The purpose of this study was to develop, validate, and establish the reliability of an instrument to assess the self--efficacy beliefs of prospective elementary teachers with regard to science teaching and learning for diverse learners. The study builds upon the work of Ashton, Webb, and Bandura. The Self-Efficacy Beliefs about Equitable Science Teaching (SEBEST) instrument is modeled after the Science Teaching Efficacy Belief Instrument (STEBI) and the Science Teaching Efficacy Belief Instrument for Prospective Teachers (STEBI-B). Based on the standardized development procedures used and the associated evidence, the SEBEST appears to be a content and construct valid instrument with high internal reliability qualities for use with prospective elementary teachers to assess personal self-efficacy beliefs for teaching and learning science for diverse learners.
