The Meaning and Measure of Teachers' Sense of Responsibility for Educational Outcomes
Lauermann, Fani; Karabenick, Stuart A.
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v30 p13-26 Feb 2013
We provide a critical review of existing teacher responsibility measures, develop the rationale for, and introduce a new Teacher Responsibility Scale (TRS). Evidence from a sample of German pre-service teachers (Study 1) and American in-service teachers (Study 2) supported a multi-dimensional model of teacher responsibility with four subscales that assess responsibility for student motivation, student achievement, relationships with students, and teaching. The study demonstrated that teacher responsibility is conceptually and empirically distinct from self-efficacy, and that the associations between responsibility and self-efficacy vary by the type of educational outcome. Implications for research on teaching and teacher education are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 5 figures.)
