This 2021 study focuses on the impact of inquiry based professional development on educator self-efficacy. The study works to understand how practices like cognitive coaching and inquiry-based practices assist educators in developing self-efficacy related to their practice. Educators were given the New General Self-Efficacy Scale (Chen et al., 2001), before and after an observation process and were interviewed as a part of their post-observation. The research took place in a rural Minnesota school district with both primary and secondary education staff. The data and results that follow display both a consistent and increased level of self-efficacy as it pertains to cognitive coaching and inquiry based, reflective processional development practices.
