Mathematics Teaching Efficacy Beliefs Instrument (MTEBI)

The Mathematics Teaching Efficacy Belief Instrument (MTEBI) is a domain-specific modification of the Science Teaching Efficacy Belief Instrument (STEBI). The MTEBI measures pre-service teacher's beliefs regarding mathematical instruction, students' ability to learn mathematics and teacher's sense of efficacy in teaching mathematics.
