The instrument was administered to 160 mathematics teachers from the elementary, secondary, and tertiary levels. Their responses were analyzed using factor analytic method. A principal factor with iteration was employed. Likewise, varimax rotation method was also used. Results of the study show five factors with eigenvalues greater than one emerged from the factor analysis of the Mathematics teacher’s response to the self-efficacy beliefs scale.
