Teacher Self-Efficacy and Teacher Burnout: A Study of Relations
Skaalvik, Einar M.; Skaalvik, Sidsel
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v26 n4 p1059-1069 May 2010
The purpose of this study was partly to test the factor structure of a recently developed Norwegian scale for measuring teacher self-efficacy and partly to explore relations between teachers' perception of the school context, teacher self-efficacy, collective teacher efficacy, teacher burnout, teacher job satisfaction, and teachers' beliefs that factors external to teaching puts limitations to what they can accomplish. Participants were 2249 Norwegian teachers in elementary school and middle school. The data were analyzed by means of structural equation modelling using the AMOS 7 program. Teacher self-efficacy, collective efficacy and two dimensions of burnout were differently related both to school context variables and to teacher job satisfaction. (Contains 5 figures and 3 tables.)
