The Effect of Early Fieldwork on Mathematics Efficacy Beliefs for Pre-Service Teachers
Hunt-Ruiz, Heidi; Watson, Scott B.
SRATE Journal, v24 n2 p59-66 Sum 2015
The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of an early fieldwork experience on preservice teachers' mathematics efficacy beliefs. This quasi-experimental study included 127 preservice teachers from two community colleges who were enrolled in mathematics for teachers' two-course sequence. The Personal Mathematics Teaching Efficacy portion of the Mathematics for Teaching Efficacy Beliefs Instrument was used to gather data. Fieldwork was not determined to be a significant factor in personal mathematics efficacy. However, personal mathematics teaching efficacy did significantly increase for both experimental and control groups.
