Bedir, Gülay
International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, v8 n1 p41-54 2015
This research aims to identify how teaching efficacy is perceived by teachers working at state schools. Having a survey model design, this study hosts a total of 678 primary and secondary school teachers--401 females and 277 males--working in the province of Tokat during the academic year of 2013 and 2014. Research data has been collected through teaching efficacy scale consisting of 28 items and 6 sub-dimensions. Analyses have revealed that teachers mostly regard themselves as efficient especially in class management dimension. On the contrary, the dimension that participating teachers feel the least efficient has been determined to be instructional methods/strategies. Significant differences have been noted among teachers' perception concerning teaching efficacy across different variables such as the faculty they graduated, gender, course match, in-service training, branch, and seniority.
