Dimensions of Teacher Self-Efficacy among Chinese Secondary School Teachers in Hong Kong
Chan, David W.
Educational Psychology, v28 n2 p181-194 Mar 2008
This article reports the development of a teacher self-efficacy scale that aims to accommodate the complexity of teacher functioning in secondary schools in times of education reforms in Hong Kong. The scale was designed to assess six domains of teacher self-efficacy: teaching highly able learners, classroom management, guidance and counselling, student engagement, teaching to accommodate diversity, and teaching for enriched learning. The total scale and the six subscales were evaluated based on the responses of 159 Hong Kong Chinese prospective and in-service teachers for internal consistency and construct validity, and for convergent and discriminant validation with external measures. (Contains 5 tables.)
