Pradeep Kumar Mishra, Sreyashree Acha


The present study focuses on determining Teacher Efficacy of senior-secondary school teachers in relation to their locale and Organisational Climate. Sample of the study consisted of 400 teachers, selected through stratified random sampling, belonging to the state of Odisha.The Standardised Teacher Efficacy scale and Organisational Climate Inventory were used to measure the Teacher Efficacy and Organisational Climate of senior-secondary schools. Statistical techniques such as “t” test and Two-way ANOVA were used to find out the significant difference between rural and urban schools and to see the effect of Locale and Organisational Climate on Teacher Efficacy. The result of the study showed that rural and urban teachers don’t differ in Teacher Efficacy. On the other hand difference was marked between open and closed climate schools in Teacher Efficacy. The result of two way ANOVA revealed that Locale of senior-secondary school teachers is not affecting the Teacher Efficacy where as Teacher Efficacy is affected by the Organisational Climate of the school.  The interaction effect of Locale and Organisational climate on Teacher Efficacy was found statistically significant at 0.05 level.
