A Quantitative Study Examining Teacher Stress, Burnout, and Self-Efficacy
Stephenson, Timar D.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Phoenix
The purpose of this quantitative, correlational study was to examine the relationships between stress, burnout, and self-efficacy in public school teachers in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The Teacher Stress Inventory was used to collect data on teacher stress, the Maslach Burnout Inventory Educators Survey was used to obtain data on teacher burnout, and the Teacher Sense of Efficacy Scale was used to collect data on self-efficacy. The data were analyzed through descriptive statistics, resulting in descriptions of the demographic and background characteristics of the sample (n = 178) and the five composite variables. The two inferential tests used in this study consisted of the Pearson correlation coefficient and the independent samples t test. The results of the analysis indicate that teacher stress scores are positively correlated with emotional exhaustion scores (r = 0.60; p < 0.001) and with depersonalization scores (r = 0.44; p < 0.001) and negatively correlated with personal accomplishment scores (r = -0.17; p = 0.025). Teachers' self-efficacy scores are negatively correlated with emotional exhaustion scores (r = -0.36; p < 0.001) and depersonalization scores (r = -0.53; p < 0.001) and positively correlated with personal accomplishment scores (r = 0.37; p < 0.001). Other key findings from the analysis include that male and female teachers do not significantly differ in terms of stress, burnout (as measured by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment), or self-efficacy. Additionally, expatriate and local teachers do not significantly differ in terms of stress, burnout (as measured by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment), or self-efficacy.
