1. Harper, Audrey Lynn. Will Teachers Implement Instruction Aligned to the Common Core State Standards?: Utilizing a Predictive Model.

Degree: EdD, Educational Leadership Doctoral Program, 2017, Western Kentucky University

The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) as a predictive model for secondary (i.e., grades six through twelve) teachers’ intent to implement instruction aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Two differing TPB models were investigated utilizing a regression analysis. The first model included TPB elements including attitude, subjective norms, and perceived behavioral control (i.e., self-efficacy) while the second model included two additional measures including perceived knowledge and accurate knowledge. Because a measure for secondary teachers’ sense of efficacy for literacy instruction did not exist to measure the construct in the TPB theoretical model, a scale was created and an initial validation study was conducted on the scale. Overall, subjective norms were a significant predictor of secondary teachers’ intent to implement literacy instruction across both TPB models. Sense of efficacy was a significant contributor in the original model, yet it did not demonstrate significance in the second model when knowledge was entered. Perceived knowledge was a significant predictor in the second model. Advisors/Committee Members: Lisa Duffin (Director), Jennifer Cribbs, Pamela Petty, and Tony Norman.
