Culturally Responsive Teaching Self-Efficacy Scale (CRTSE)

The Culturally Responsive Teaching Self-Efficacy Scale (CRTSE) is a survey that assess teachers’ beliefs that engaging in culturally responsive teaching practices will have positive classroom and student outcomes. The scale is based on Bandura's (1977) research on outcome expectancies (a person's estimate that a given behavior will lead to certain outcomes), and Siwatu's (2006) research on Culturally Responsive Teaching Competencies. Survey respondents rate from 0 to 100 the probability that a certain culturally responsive teaching behavior will lead to positive classroom and student outcomes. The scale has primarily been used to support the development of preservice teachers.

Psychometric Considerations

Psychometrics is the science of psychological assessment. A primary goal of EdInstruments is to provide information on crucial psychometric topics including Validity and Reliability – essential concepts of evaluation, which indicate how well an instrument measures a construct - as well as additional properties that are worthy of consideration when selecting an instrument of measurement.
