AN INVESTIGATION OF PRIMARY AND HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS' PERCEPTION LEVELS OF EFFICACY OF MEASUREMENT AND EVALUATION IN EDUCATION IN TURKEY
Abstract:Primary and high school teachers' perception levels of the efficacy of measurement and evaluation in education were investigated to determine whether or not their perception of efficacy differs according to their gender, age, place of employment, branch, years of teaching experience, and taking a measurement and evaluation course or instructional planning and evaluation course. 225 teachers were selected randomly from 5 primary schools and 7 high schools in Eskişehir, Turkey. Data which were collected through the Perception of Efficacy Scale about Measurement and Evaluation in Education revealed that their perception of efficacy levels of measurement and evaluation in education were at a high level and were significantly associated with their branch and place of employment. However, there were no significant relationships between the teachers' perceived levels of the efficacy of measurement and evaluation in education and the other variables examined.
