Teacher self-regulation: examining a multidimensional construct

This study aimed to develop and validate an instrument to assess the multidimensional nature of teacher self-regulation. A nine-factor structure was proposed: goal setting, intrinsic interest, performance goal orientation, mastery goal orientation, self-instruction, emotional control, self-evaluation, self-reaction, and help-seeking. Through a series of confirmatory factor analyses with different samples, this nine-factor structure was supported. Reliability estimates were also satisfactory. Further validation evidence was provided through canonical correlation analysis between teacher self-regulation and teachers' sense of efficacy. Results indicated that the Teacher Self-Regulation Scale can be utilised as a valid and reliable instrument to assess teachers' self-regulatory strategies.
