Interactions of IEP Quality and Intervention Self-Efficacy for Pre-Service Teachers
This study investigated interactions between self-efficacy and IEP quality. Pre-service teachers in two similar student cohorts completed self-efficacy surveys for multi-tiered interventions and wrote IEPs using data for a child with severe disabilities. Researchers scored IEP quality using the IEP Quality Inventory, rating quality of IEP components from unacceptable to legally defensible. The quality of IEPs written by the pre-service teachers revealed error patterns with implications for future instruction. Scores for IEP quality co-varied with selfefficacy for engaging students, finding and judging evidence-based practices, and multi-tiered interventions in general.
