Applying Theory of Planned Behavior Model on Studying Teachers' Change in Mathematics Instruction
Oh, Youngyool
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the 27th International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education Conference Held Jointly with the 25th PME-NA Conference (Honolulu, HI, Jul 13-18, 2003), v3 p405-412
The present study aims at gaining an understanding of structures underlying Korean teachers' willingness to change their traditionally-oriented mathematics teaching practice toward reform-oriented mathematics instruction. Elementary school teachers from a metropolitan city of Korea (N = 281) participated in this study. To deal with this problem, this study employs the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) as a research framework and Structural Equation Modeling using AMOS 4.0 as a statistical model was used to analyze the data. The findings indicate that the TPB is a useful model for explaining teacher change in teaching practice, suggesting that beliefs-based programs will be effective for successful teacher education.
