Classroom Management Self-Efficacy of Pre-Service Teachers

Tammie T. Patterson, Dr. Aarek Farmer

Abstract


This quantitative, quasi-experimental design study examined 75 pre-service teachers’ perceptions of their own self-efficacy regarding classroom management. Data was collected at three different intervals throughout the student teaching experience, which was also accompanied by a training seminar focusing on classroom organization and management (Classroom Organization and Management Program). Results showed that pre-service teachers exhibited significantly higher perceptions of self-efficacy at different intervals throughout their student teaching. Data from this study provides Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs) with further data, which will allow them to create program curricula and strategies to better prepare pre-service teachers to become successful and confident classroom teachers.
