FERNANDEZ-ARATA, José Manuel. Teachers' Performance and its Relationship to Goal Orientation, Learning Strategies and Self-Efficacy: a Study with Elementary School Teachers in Lima, Peru. Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.2, pp. 385-401. ISSN 1657-9267.
The objective was to study the relationship between goal orientation, learning strategies, self efficacy and perception of teaching performance in elementary teachers in Metropolitan Lima. The sample consisted of 313 teachers from the various UGEL (Lima's Educative Management Units), 224 women and 89 men. The instruments used in the study were: the Teacher Orientation Questionnaire (PALS, 1997, 2000), the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSQL, 1991), the Teacher's Perceived Efficacy Scale by Tschannen-Moran and Woolfolk (2001) and the Teaching Performance Self-Report Questionnaire (Fernández, 2002). The results indicate the existence of positive relationships among the studied variables. The results are discussed according to the goals of the study.
