International Journal of Higher Education, v6 n6 p112-128 2017
This study aims to determine the variables affecting teacher candidates' perceived self-efficacy levels. The study was conducted with 560 students who attended the pedagogical formation programs, a type of teacher training program, run by two different universities in Turkey during the academic year of 2016-2017. The data was obtained by Teachers' Sense of Efficacy Scale, developed by Tschannen-Moran and Hoy (2001) and adopted to Turkish by Çapa, Çakiroglu and Sarikaya (2005). SPSS package program was used for data analysis, and percentage, arithmetic mean, standard deviation, independent groups t-test, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and LSD test were used for the analysis of data. According to the study findings, candidates' views on self-efficacy differ according to their ages, sexes, universities, settlements they have lived the longest, faculties and mother's education level while their self-efficacy views did not differ according to their own and father's education level. As the teacher candidates' ages increased, their self-efficacy also increased. Males compared to females, Kafkas University's students compared to Nigde Ömer Halisdemir University's students, the students who have lived in metropolises the longest compared to others, students from faculties who accept students with ability exams compared to other faculties considered themselves more efficacious about teaching.
