Abstract

The main aim of this study is to reveal classroom teachers’ personal value perceptions and the level of their efficiencies. The quantitative research method was used in the research. The target population of the research consisted of 335 classroom teachers in Kars. Multi stage sampling model was selected in order to determine the sampling in the research. First, Kars City Center and its boroughs were accepted as a layer respectively, and then layered sampling was used as a random sampling model. For the sampling, Kars City center and its boroughs in which the schools’ and teachers’ scale were applied was defined using random sampling model. The tools used for the data collection in the research include Teacher Personal Value Scale and Teacher Efficiency Scale. To determine personal information, personal value perception and the efficiency levels of the teachers, the percent, frequency, and arithmetic average values were defined. Also, to determine whether personal value perception and efficiency levels differed according to the personal characteristic for unrelated sampling, t-test and one-way ANOVA analysis techniques were used. Post hoc test was applied to find the differences in the result of one-way ANOVA test. The Pearson moments correlation coefficient test was done to determine the teachers’ personal values and efficiency levels.
