Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relations between preservice teachers' views about nature of science and sense of efficacy. The study group was comprised of 72 female and 24 male preservice teachers and their average age were 19.53 (range 18 to 35), and 20.75 (range 18 to 52), respectively. The Nature of Science View Scale (NOSvs) and the Teachers' Sense of Efficacy Scale (TSES) were used as data collection tools. The Pearson product-moment correlation analysis was conducted to explore the relations between pre-service teachers' views about nature of science and sense of efficacy. According to the correlation analysis, it was determined that there is a significant correlation between preservice teachers' views about nature of science (p=.000 and r=.403, for the total score) and sense of efficacy.
