2009-02-01
The purpose of this study was to investigate primary school and mathematics teachers' efficacy beliefs and perceptions in the context of the new primary mathematics curriculum in Turkey and identify differences, if any, in teachers' efficacy beliefs and perceptions based on their area of certification, gender, and experience. The sample consisted of 805 teachers, 696 of whom were primary and 105 of whom were mathematics teachers working in elementary schools located in 5 cities of Turkey. The questionnaire administered to participants was adapted by the researchers throughout the study. The results of the MANOVA analysis indicated that teachers' area of certification and experience had a significant role on the collective dependent variables, gender did not.
