Self-Efficacy and its Relationship to Psychological Stress Among Public Education Teachers in Al-Kharj at the Time of the COVID-19 Pandemic and its Relationship to Different Variables
Main Article Content
The present study aims to measure the level of self-efficacy among teachers working in Al-Kharj, Riyadh's public schools. Some demographic factors are considered and the relationship with psychological stress is also investigated. 56 male and 608 female teachers constituted the sample, which was randomly selected. After confirming their psychometric qualities, the relational descriptive technique was applied to the sample in order to achieve the objectives of the study (veracity, consistency). The results of the study show that the sample has a high level of self-efficacy. The results also show that the instructors experience moderate levels of psychological distress. The psychological distress scale and the self-efficacy measure have a statistically significant inverse relationship. This suggests that the level of psychological distress among general education teachers is inversely correlated with their level of self-efficacy. The study is important because it developed the psychological distress scale and the self-efficacy scale. It also suggests the development of unique in-depth training programs for teachers to improve their e-learning skills and reduce psychological stress.
