Abstract

This study was carried out on 600 School/college Teachers to determine the psychometric characteristics i.e. objectivity, reliability, validity, norms and practicability of a bilingual (English and Hindi) Teacher's Self Efficacy scale. Cronbach's !lpha of the scale was found 0.85, which is quite high. Content validity of the scale was verified by a number of subject matter experts, academicians and professionals. Using a more structured method, Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) with varimax rotation was carried out and six factors emerged in the analysis. In summing up all six factors explained 51.91% of the total variance which confirms the high factorial/construct validity of scale. Further, inter-factorial correlations among sub-dimensions of Teacher's Self Efficacy scale found highly significant (p<0.001). It can be concluded that the present research work confirms high psychometric characteristics of Teacher's Self Efficacy scale. Conclusion drawn uses, implications and suggestions for future research proposed.
