Building Resiliency: Introducing the Pre-Service Special Educator Efficacy Scale
Lombardo-Graves, Mary M.
Issues in Educational Research, v27 n4 p803-821 2017
The goal of this study was to examine existing teaching self-efficacy instruments for an appropriate measure for pre-service special education candidates. As the review of literature for this study revealed, there were very few self-efficacy instruments specific to special education, and these focused on specific populations and settings. During the preparation for this study, there were no teaching self-efficacy scales to date designed specifically to measure initial special education teaching self-efficacy during teacher preparation. The "Pre-Service Special Educator Efficacy Scale" (SEES-I) instrument was created using research based guidelines and Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) standards for the initial skill set of novice special educators. This study makes a contribution to the field of special education and teaching self-efficacy research by developing and analysing a new instrument to measure pre-service special education teaching self-efficacy.
