Abstract

This study explored out the relationship between teachers' self-efficacy and students' academic achievement at secondary school level. The study encompassed teachers' behavior in the classroom environment during teaching learning process. The objectives of the study were: (i). To measure district wise relationship between teachers' self efficacy and students' academic achievement. (ii). To measure district wise relationship between teachers' self-efficacy and students' academic achievement gender wise. and (iii). To measure district wise relationship between teachers' self efficacy and students' academic achievement location wise. The following null hypotheses were formulated: H0: (1) There is no significant relationship between teachers' self efficacy and students' academic achievement. H0: (2) There is no significant relationship between teachers' self efficacy and students' academic achievement gender wise in the subject of Mathematics. H0: (3) There is no significant relationship between teachers' self efficacy and students' academic achievement gender wise in the subject of English. H0: (4) There is no significant relationship between teachers' self-efficacy and students' academic achievement location wise in the subject of Mathematics. H0: (5) There is no significant relationship between teachers' self-efficacy and students' academic achievement location wise in the subject of English. The sample of the study consisted of 3072 participants with a break up of 512 teachers and 2560 students from all over the country. The study was delimited to the following levels: (1). The study was delimited to sixteen districts of Pakistan. (2). Only public sector secondary schools were included. To collect teachers' opinions about their teaching self-efficacy, Teacher Sense of Efficacy Scale (long form) developed by Tschannen - Moran and Hoy (2001), was used. The present study involved interval data with two variables i.e. teachers' efficacy scores and students' academic achievement scores. The Pearson r Product Moment was to measure relationship between both the variables. Major findings and conclusions of the study were drawn accordingly. The correlation between teachers' efficacy scores and students' academic achievement scores were observed highly context specific. Relationship between female teachers' efficacy scores and their related female students' academic achievement scores in the subject of English was found higher as compared to relationship between male English teachers' efficacy and their related male students' academic achievement in the subject of English. Moderate gender differences were observed in the subject of English and Mathematics as well. Location wise differences (rural and urban) in relationship were also recorded. It is therefore, recommended that in teacher training program essentials for development of teachers' self efficacy may be incorporated.
