Chester, Mitchell D.; Beaudin, Barbara Q.
American Educational Research Journal, v33 n1 p233-57 Spr 1996
The relationships between change in self-efficacy beliefs, teacher characteristics, and school practices were studied for 173 newly hired teachers in urban schools. Findings suggest that the previously noted decline in self-efficacy beliefs in the first year of teaching is not universal. Mediating factors are discussed. (SLD)
