ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Utah
This study examined the correlation between teacher self-efficacy and student outcomes. Teacher self-efficacy was measured in 99 Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Seminaries and Institutes seminary teachers using Tschannen-Moran and Hoy's Teachers Sense of Efficacy Scale (2001). Student outcomes included academic grades, conduct grades, and attendance percentages. Statistical analysis of these factors found a positive correlation between teacher beliefs and certain student outcomes. It was concluded that teacher training--both preservice and in-service--would be enhanced if methods appropriate to teacher self-efficacy growth were utilized.
