An Investigation of the Factor Structure of the Teacher Efficacy Scale.
Deemer, Sandra A.; Minke, Kathleen M.
Journal of Educational Research, v93 n1 p3-10 Sep-Oct 1999
Investigated the effects of positive versus negative orientation in item wording on interpretation of the Teacher Efficacy Scale (TES) factor structure by varying the orientation of items across both dimensions of efficacy. Teachers completed one of two forms of the TES. Three potential factor structures were examined using principal axis factoring. When wording confounds were eliminated, the TES appeared unidimensional. (SM)
