Improve student outcomes with collective teacher efficacy. If educators’ realities are filtered through the belief that they can do very little to influence student achievement, then it is likely these beliefs will manifest in their practice. The solution? Collective efficacy (CE)—the belief that, through collective actions, educators can influence student outcomes and increase achievement. Educators with high efficacy show greater effort and persistence, willingness to try new teaching approaches, and attend more closely to struggling students’ needs. This book presents practical strategies and tools for increasing student achievement by sharing: Rationale and sources for establishing CE Conditions and leadership practices for CE to flourish Professional learning structures/protocols

This brief focuses on a vital aspect of efficacy known as "collective teacher efficacy" (CTE). CTE refers to the perceptions of teachers that the efforts of the faculty as a whole will have a positive effect on students. Principals and district leaders should turn their attention to improving CTE because it has an impressive list of positive consequences: (1) improves student performance; (2) ameliorates the negative effects of low socioeconomic status (SES); (3) enhances parent/teacher relationships; and (4) creates a work environment that builds teacher commitment to the school. Only in the last decade or so have researchers begun to look at specific actions that school or district leaders can take to improve collective efficacy among teachers. This emerging body of research, though still in its early stages, suggests that the following actions on the part of principals can improve collective efficacy: (1) Build instructional knowledge and skills; (2) Create opportunities for teachers to collaboratively share skills and experience; (3) Interpret results and provide actionable feedback on teachers' performance; and (4) Involve teachers in school decision making.

With this book, students, researchers, and practitioners now have a go-to reference on efficacy research packed with psychological strategies for helping athletes and coaches overcome specific weaknesses. Self-Efficacy in Sport - the first book devoted entirely to this important topic - compiles over 30 years of burgeoning self-efficacy research into a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis. Written by three eminent researchers in the field, it introduces theory-based and research-tested guidelines and recommendations for designing, implementing, and evaluating interventions to improve self-efficacy, yet it remains easy for readers to find research and interventions that fit their needs. An annotated bibliography allows readers to quickly and critically evaluate all the self-efficacy research cited in the book, which prevents this text from becoming simply a long literature review. Practitioners will be able to put research into practice to serve clients, and students and researchers will be challenged to think critically about the subject and chart the course for new directions in research.

The purpose of this quantitative study was to examine the association between collective efficacy, teacher beliefs, and socioeconomic status with reading and math student achievement in the Title I and Non-Title I schools of one school district. This study examined factors that influence student achievement in a district with a majority of Title I schools. Of the eight K–8 schools in the participating district, five are Title I. -- Collective efficacy and teacher beliefs were used to gather data about what teachers believe regarding student learning. The efficacy survey in this study provided data about instructional strategies and student discipline. The beliefs survey provided data on teacher beliefs about student learning, problem-solving, and instructional effectiveness. The EVAAS growth scores indicated reading and math achievement for the participating district. Socioeconomic status was determined by the number of students receiving free and reduced lunch and was collected from district reports. -- Descriptive statistics, multiple linear regression analysis, and Pearson’s product-moment correlations were used to determine the significance of the association between collective efficacy, teacher beliefs, and socioeconomic status with reading and math student achievement in the Title I and Non-Title I schools of one school district. -- The multiple linear regression model for reading produced usable models for Title I and Non-Title I schools; however, the model for math was not reliable. Teacher beliefs were not found to have a significant association of either reading or math achievement in this study. Socioeconomic status and reading indicated a statistically significant p value, but the effect size was too small to determine practical significance. Correlation values for collective efficacy overall and both the instructional strategies subscale and the student discipline subscale produced moderate associations. The pairing for socioeconomic status and student achievement did not produce significant associations.

This third edition has been completely revised to reflect the advances that have occurred in the field within the past several years. The text provides readers with a complete picture of current research and emerging topics in sport psychology while challenging researchers to examine the factors that keep this discipline growing.

Each chapter includes a definition of terms, an explanation of the chapter's scope, and an outline of the sections. The author then provides a review of the available research and theory on the chapter's main topic, analyzes the state of knowledge in the area, and devotes significant space to future research directions. The book is divided into four parts. Part Ioffers a comprehensive introduction to the field, including definitions, history, and research paradigms and methodologies. Part IIexplores individual characteristics that affect sport participants' behavior, including self-perceptions, attributional patterns and perceptions of control, motivational orientations, and achievement goal perspectives.
