Emotional Intelligence and Teaching Self-Efficacy as Predictors of Teaching Ability

Ofra Walter



Emotional Intelligence (EI) has proved to be a promising concept in the fields of psychology and education. EI is still being regarded cautiously as a ‘gold standard’ for measurement and prediction for acceptance for teacher training program. This study examines the potential contribution of four measures – EI, teaching self-efficacy (TSE), psychometric exam grades, and grades of teaching skills during field training. The research population comprised 100 student teachers from college in northern Israel. The findings will help to shed more light on the implications of EI and point to future directions in the evaluation, selection and training of excellent teachers.
