The Effects of Laboratory-based and Field-based Practicum Experience on Pre-service Teachers' Self-Efficacy
The goal of this study was to explore the effect of Laboratory-Based (LB) and Field-Based (FB) practicum experience on pre-service teachers' efficacy levels within one Physical Education Teacher Education program. 59 undergraduate students participated in the program.

The purpose of the review was threefold. First, the theorized sources of self-efficacy beliefs proposed by A. Bandura (1986) are described and explained, including how they are typically assessed and analyzed. Second, findings from investigations of these sources in academic contexts are reviewed and critiqued. Third, problems and oversights in current research and in conceptualizations of the sources are identified.

More than A Place to Teach: Exploring the Perceptions of the Roles and Responsibilities of Mentor Teachers
The goal of this study was to shed light on mentor teachers' perceptions of their roles and responsibilities and to contrast their understandings with a normative view of mentoring (Goldsberry, 1998; Hawkey, 1997). The authors hypothesized that the mentor teachers' perceptions would likely differ from established conceptions of this construct. This difference has significant implications for mentor preparation and university collaboration.

The Impact of a NCLB-EETT Funded Professional Development Program on Teacher Self-Efficacy and Resultant Implementation
In response to the need to train teachers to effectively integrate technology into elementary and secondary education, a teacher professional development program funded by a federal grant provided a selection of instructional technology integration courses to K-12 teachers. This study investigated the impact of these courses on the course participants' self-efficacy in learning about and implementing instructional technology. The study also explored the differential effects of these courses on participants' self-efficacy due to different demographic characteristics. The positive perceptions of the course effectiveness from the participants suggested an overall success of the program.

This study examined several potential sources of teachers’ self-efficacy beliefs to see if differences could be found between novice and experienced teachers. 255 novice and experienced teachers from Ohio and Virginia participated in this study. This study has demonstrated that, compared to career teachers, novice teachers’ self-efficacy seems to be more influenced by contextual factors such as verbal persuasion and the availability of resources.

Two culturally responsive scales, Culturally Responsive Teaching Self-Efficacy Scale (CRTSE), and the Culturally Responsive Teaching Outcome Expectancy (CRTOE) Scale, written by author—were developed and administered to a sample of preservice teachers in the Midwest. Findings suggest preservice teachers are more efficacious in their ability to help students feel like important members of the classroom and develop positive, personal relationships with their students, than they are in their ability to communicate with English Language Learners. The preservice teachers were the lowest in letting their student maintain their native tongue to keep their cultural identity.
