In this study, a scale entitled "Information and Communication Technologies Usage and Material Design Efficacy [ICT_MDE]" is developed to investigate pre-service science and technology teachers' efficacy beliefs regarding ICT usage and Material Design and the factors impacting these beliefs. By using the validity and reliability data from 310 pre-service teachers, ICT_MDE scale is concluded to be a valid and reliable instrument consisting of two factors: Basic ICT Skills and Original Material Design. Based on the data from this pilot study; the efficacy levels in Basic ICT Skills factor significantly changed by the income level and computer usage experience. However, efficacy scores in Original Material Design factor are found to differ only by computer usage experience. Furthermore, no significant difference due to gender has been observed in both factors.
