INVESTIGATION OF PROFESSIONAL SELF SUFFICIENCY LEVELS OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORTS TEACHERS
The present research aimed at detecting professional self sufficiency levels of physical education and sports teachers who worked in Izmir Province and at investigating them in terms of some variables. For data collection, Teacher’s Sense of Efficacy Scale-developed by Moran and Woolfolk-Hoy (2001) and Turkish validity and reliability studies conducted by Çapa, Çakıroğlu and Sarıkaya (2005) was used. 100 volunteer Physical Education and Sports Teachers who worked at state schools and private schools participated in the study. For the data analysis; percentages, arithmetic means, Mann-Whitney Test, Kruskal-Wallis, Pearson Correlation Test and non-parametric correlations were used. Consequently, when self sufficiency scores of the PE teachers in terms of working at state schools and private schools were compared, it was found out that all of the subscale-scores of the teachers who worked at private schools were higher and there was a statistically significant difference between the teachers (p<.05). In terms of sex variable, scores of the female PE teachers were higher but there was not a statistically significant difference (p>.05). There was also a statistically significant correlation between Efficacy in Student Engagement and Efficacy in Instructional strategies, Efficacy in Classroom Management (p<.01). It was determined that sufficiency scores of the participant PE teacher increased with professional experience.
