The Relationship Between Teacher Attitude and Self-Efficacy for Inclusive Practices in Turkey

Osman Özokcu

Abstract


This study aims to investigate the relationship between Turkish teachers’ attitudes and their self-efficacy for inclusive practices using a relational survey design. Study participants included a total of 1163 preschool, classroom, subject-matter, and special-education teachers from four different geographical regions in Turkey. The data was collected using the Sentiments, Attitudes, and Concerns about Inclusive Education Scale (SACIE-R) and the Teacher Efficacy for Inclusive Practice (TEIP) Scale. The data were analyzed using the Pearson Product-Moment Correlation and Multiple Linear Regression tests with the help of SPSS. The results reported a positive significant relationship between teachers’ attitudes and self-efficacy for inclusive practices. Results also revealed teacher self-efficacy to be a significant predictor of their attitudes towards inclusive education.
