Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze the teacher self-efficacy beliefs of the teacher candidates by some variables such as gender and general academic achievement. Twenty nine students participated to this study. Teacher self-efficacy scale and educational software development self-efficacy scale were used as instruments. No significant difference was found between teacher self-efficacy perceptions of teacher candidates according to their gender. There was weak relationship between teacher self-efficacy perception of teacher candidates and their general academic achievement. Also there was a high positive relationship between teacher self-efficacy perception and educational software development self-efficacy. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
