Mentor Self-efficacy and Perceived Program Support scale: M-SEPPS

Suzannah Vallejo Calvery, PhD

National Mentoring Summit

January 25, 2013


Down the Rabbit Hole:

Lit Review and Design

Fun with Scales:

Instrumentation

Psychometric Joy:

Validity and Reliability

Back out of the looking glass:

Implications and Applications

The Agenda


  • Funding is increasingly focused on:

    • Outcomes-based assessment

    • Best-practices

  • Only proven interventions are receiving the funding necessary to implement solutions.

The Big Question


  • Best practices gleaned over time

    • Match quality

    • Match length

    • Program infrastructure

  • 2002 vs. 2011 findings of DuBois et al. studies (2002, 2011)

Down the Rabbit Hole: Does mentoring work?


Dyadic construct with monadic research base

Best practices tied to mentor self-efficacy

What about the Mentor?


M-SEPPS Instrument

Research Questions:

What are the psychometric properties of the proposed measure?

Are there significant differences between demographic groups?

New Instrument Preparation & Validation


Fun with Scales

  • 6. Analysis:

    • Assumptions

    • Exploratory Factor Analysis

    • Item analysis

    • Reliability estimation

  • Literature Review

  • Item Construction*

  • Pilot

  • Item Refinement

  • Data Collection

* Bandura, 2006; Fowler, 2009; Gefen & Straub, 2005; Netemeyer, Bearden, & Sharma, 2003; Nunnally, 1978; Nunnally & Bernstein, 1994; Pett, Lackey, & Sullivan, 2003.


Method

  • Participants

  • Original scale/item pool:

    • General self-efficacy

    • Personal teaching efficacy

    • Mentor/tutor self efficacy

    • Program Support


104 participants in remaining analysis

18 total items

3 latent constructs

Process:

PAF (Pett, Lackey, & Sullivan, 2003, Tabachnik & Fidell, 2007)

Direct Oblimin rotation w/delta level of -.5*

5 original factors extracted, 3 retained

Principal Axis factoring

*Pett et al.


Psychometric Joy!


Reliability Estimates

Factor Correlations and Factor Alpha Coefficients for the M-SEPPS Scale

Per Research Question #2:

Original Demographic data variables:

Age, Gender, Ethnicity, Level of education, Previous experience tutoring, Years tutoring.

Age was the only demographic variable that had significant differences between levels on Factors 2 an 3.


Back out of the Looking Glass:Limitations and Future Research

  • Limitations:

    • Sample size

    • Test-retest reliability

    • Scale redundancy

  • Next Steps:

    • CFA

    • Larger sample

    • Scale reduction


Program Evaluation

Dynamic program assessment

Building support for implementation of best practices

And after that? Implications for practice
