Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The core goal of this work was to evaluate the effect of teacher’s self-efficacy strategies and creativity in the Music Initiation students’ self-efficacy and in their results. To obtain data, we prepared a study with 52 students of the 4th year classes of Pedome’s School Grouping, Vila Nova de Famalicão. The study was divided in three moments: in the first moment were assessed the self-efficacy believes through a questionnaire; in a second moment was made a lesson using the teacher’s creativity, and again was measured the self-efficacy levels and pupils answered a theoretical/practice test; in the third moment it was added teacher’s self-efficacy strategies and was made the same evaluation of the last moment. The results show a positive correlation between the students’ self-efficacy and their results; and also that better self-efficacy scores and higher grades were achieved in the study’s conclusion.
