de Boer, Eveline; Janssen, Fred J. J. M.; van Driel, Jan H. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2016
To increase the teacher efficacy of student teachers, they need positive classroom experiences: mastery experiences. These mastery experiences have to be created by the student teachers themselves. Therefore, student teachers need a tool to better understand problematic teaching experiences and help them create positive classroom experiences. Nine…

Menon, Deepika; Sadler, Troy D. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2016
Self-efficacy beliefs that relate to teachers' motivation and performance have been an important area of concern for preservice teacher education. Research suggests high-quality science coursework has the potential to shape preservice teachers' science self-efficacy beliefs. However, there are few studies examining the relationship between science…

Smolleck, Lori Dira; Zembal-Saul, Carla; Yoder, Edgar P. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2006
The purpose of this study was to develop, validate, and establish the reliability of an instrument that measures preservice teachers' self-efficacy in regard to the teaching of science as inquiry. The instrument, Teaching Science as Inquiry (TSI), is based upon the work of Bandura (1977, 1981, 1982, 1986, 1989, 1995, 1997), Riggs (1988), and…
