This study examines the effects of teachers' perceived self efficacy in the use of an integrated learning system (ILS). The Metropolitan School District of Mt. Vernon, Indiana, is using an ILS and was the source of the data for this study. By administering a survey of the teachers' attitudes toward the ILS, an attempt was made to establish each teacher's level of perceived self-efficacy in the use of the ILS. The results of that survey were then compared with the results of standardized tests of students' educational progress and achievement. It was hoped that the study would shed light on the possible relationship between teachers' attitudes and the effective use of ILSs.
The results of this study support the hypothesis that elementary teachers' higher levels of perceived self-efficacy in the use of ILSs will have a positive correlation with student achievement. In so doing, the results of this study underscore the importance of perceived self-efficacy.
