Teacher Beliefs – TSELI

The Teacher Beliefs-TSELI (Tschannen-Moran & Johnson, 2011) is a 22-item survey instrument designed to measure teachers’ sense of efficacy for literacy instruction. It was developed to provide a means for researchers to examine an aspect of teachers’ self-efficacy beliefs that was subject-specific. Survey items were constructed by drawing on the NCTE/IRA (1996) Standards for English Language Arts and the IRA (2004) Standards for Reading Professionals. The questions are to be answered taking into consideration the combination of current ability, resources and opportunity to do each of the items in their current position.
