Science Teaching Efficacy Belief Instrument (STEBI)

The Science Teaching Efficacy Belief Instrument (STEBI) can be used to measure science teacher's self-efficacy and outcome expectancy across all levels of teaching. The STEBI-A is the version recommended for use with in-service teachers; the STEBI-B is the version recommended for use with pre-service teachers.
