Development and Validation of the Teacher Energy Scale: A Movement toward Metapathy

Research/Original Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)
The major objective of the study was to develop and validate a Teacher Energy scale in light of the metapathy concept. To do so, first, a model was developed classifying teachers into energy creators, energy boosters, energizers, energy drainers, and energy killers. This was followed by the development of a 30-item scale. A total of 283 language learners (170 women and 113 men) between the ages of 15 and 51were asked to answer the Teacher Energy scale. Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) was employed to analyze the data. The findings showed that the scale was invalid due to the similarity of items—since the learners gave identical answers to the items and did not distinguish between the factors underlying the questionnaire. Then, the scale was reduced to 12 items, and SEM was used. The results showed that the Teacher Energy scale with two subconstructs of energy-boosting and energy-draining was valid. The results were discussed, and some suggestions were made for researchers and educators.
