DeChenne, Sue Ellen; Enochs, Larry G.; Needham, Mark – Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2012
The graduate experience is a critical time for development of academic faculty, but often there is little preparation for teaching during the graduate career. Teaching self-efficacy, an instructor's belief in his or her ability to teach students in a specific context, can help to predict teaching behavior and student achievement, and can be used…

Enochs, Larry G.; Riggs, Iris M. – School Science and Mathematics, 1990
Described is a measure of the self-efficacy of preservice elementary science teachers. Field experiences, peer teaching, and the self-evaluation of microteaching are introduced as ways to enhance science teaching self-efficacy. Validity and reliability data are presented. (KR)

Enochs, Larry G.; And Others – Science Education, 1995
Examines preservice elementary teachers' sense of self-efficacy with regard to science teaching and to define the construct of self-efficacy with greater clarity. Perceived effectiveness in teaching science was significantly correlated with outcome expectancy. (ZWH)

Enochs, Larry G.; Riggs, Iris M. – 1990
If elementary science education is to be improved, elementary teachers must be willing to devote more time and energy to the curriculum. Increased self-efficacy and outcome expectancy beliefs were predicted antecedents to the behavior change. This study was designed to provide a valid and reliable measure of the teacher self-efficacy of preservice…

Riggs, Iris M.; Enochs, Larry G. – 1989
Data indicate that although science is required of all students in elementary school, elementary teachers do not usually teach science as a high priority or in a way that enhances student achievement. A myriad of possible causes for existing voids in this teaching process have been suggested by researchers. Teacher belief systems have been…

Enochs, Larry G.; Smith, Phillip L.; Huinker, DeAnn – School Science and Mathematics, 2000
Discusses the Mathematics Teaching Efficacy Belief Instrument (MTEBI) for preservice teachers which consists of 21 items, 13 items on the Personal Mathematics Teaching Efficacy (PMTE) subscale and eight items on the Mathematics Teaching Outcome Expectancy (MTOE) subscale. Produces the alpha coefficient of 0.88 for PMTE scale and 0.75 for MTOE…

Enochs, Larry G.; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1993
Presents a study to develop and partially validate an instrument to measure the self-efficacy beliefs of teachers related to utilizing microcomputers in science instruction. The resulting instrument contained two subscales: the Outcome Expectancy and Personal Self Efficacy Scales. Appendices include the instrument and scoring instructions. (17…
