What predicts student teacher self efficacy

This descriptive survey study investigated student teachers' sources of self-efficacy. Using simultaneous regression, we predicted student teachers' sense of efficacy using their relationship with mentors, amount of field experiences, and teaching support. The regression equation accounted for 27% of the variance in efficacy scores. Highly efficacious student teachers in this sample tended to have less teaching experience, but a more positive relationship with their mentors and more teaching support.
