Abstract : Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris
This research is a secondary analysis of Malaysian TALIS database. TALIS is an International study undertaken by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) that focus on the working conditions of teachers and the learning environment in schools. TALIS examine aspects of teachers' professional development, teacher beliefs, attitudes and practices, teacher appraisal and feedback, and school leadership from the point of view of teachers and school principals. Using the TALIS database, this research examines the aspect of teacher beliefs, attitudes and practices and its influence on teacher self-efficacy. Statistical analysis techniques such as Item Response Theory (IRT), Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) and Hierarchical Linear Modeling (HLM) were employed in this research. Findings of the research indicate that there are significant relationships between teachers' self-efficacy and teachers' beliefs, attitudes and practices. Factors like classroom disciplinary climate and teacher-student relationship demonstrated direct influence on teacher selfefficacy. Other factors (e.g. teacher teaching practices, instructional beliefs, professional activities) are seems to have statistical non-significance indirect relationship with teacher self-efficacy, however, the research has proven that the factors strongly inter correlated and have effect on teacher classroom disciplinary climate and teacher-student relationship, thus may also impacted teachers' self-efficacy. The research provides valuable information for Malaysian education stakeholders about lower secondary education teachers' stand of their teaching beliefs, attitudes and practices and how it affected their self-efficacy. The knowledge can be used to improve the Malaysian teacher work force and policies relating to the education system.
