The purpose of this study was to test the Health Teaching Self-Efficacy Scale (HTSES) with a group of secondary health education teachers. In addition, comfort levels with various subject areas and years of teaching experience data were also gathered. All secondary health teachers in a selected Midwestern state were recruited via email to participate in the current study. Their responses were collected via an on-line survey created using Qualtrics software. Means of responses ranged from 3.46 (complementary and alternative medicine) to 4.69 (alcohol). Self-efficacy scores ranged from 3.09 to 4.87. Both were on a 1-5 scale. Somewhat surprisingly, correlation analysis revealed little to no relationship between years experience and comfort level with the chosen content areas. Additional research needs to be conducted to find ways, not to measure teaching self-efficacy, but to improve teaching self-efficacy.
