Thesis structure: introduction, 3 chapters, general conclusions and recommendations, bibliography of 234 titles, 141 pages of basic text, 17 appendixes, 81 tables, 20 figures.
Publications: the research results are reflected in 18 publications (8 articles in educational journals, 4 articles at international conferences, and 6 scientifico-methodological publications).
The goal of the research consists in establishing the theoretical and praсtical foundations for enhancing mathematics teaching efficacy throughout the valuation of school inspector’s leadership styles.
Research objectives: point out the peculiarities of educational leadership versus educational management; classify leadership styles and define their characteristics; examine the theoretical frame of teachers’ activity efficacy in the process of teaching mathematics; determine the functional dimension of school inspection and school inspector’s status; characterize the variables associated to teachers’ activity efficacy in the process of teaching mathematics; structure the Pedagogical model for enhancing mathematics teaching efficacy in Israeli primary schools and its experimental validation; analysis, interpretation and systematization of research results, formulating conclusions and practical recommendations.
The scientific novelty and originality of the research consist in updating the significance of the terms: school inspector, leadership style, professional efficacy, professional identification etc., in elaborating the theoretical model of hypotheses and determination of correlations between the variables associated to teachers’ professional efficacy. The scientific problem solved in this research consists in substantiating the theoretical and practical functionality of the Pedagogical model for enhancing mathematics teaching efficacy in Israeli primary schools, through the valuation of school inspectors’ leadership style, for the improvement of elementary school teachers’ activity efficacy and pupils’ achievements in mathematics.
The theoretical significance of the investigation is justified by: the establishment of theoretical aspects related to educational leadership; the determination of educational leadership styles, and definition of school inspector’s role in ensuring teachers’ activity efficacy in teaching mathematics at primary school level; the establishment of professional efficacy variables and the elaboration of the theoretical model of correlations among variables.
The practical value of the research is argued by the evaluation of variables related to teachers’ activity efficacy in teaching mathematics; elaboration of the Pedagogical model for enhancing mathematics teaching efficacy in Israeli primary schools, development and experimental validation of the formative program included in the model; interpretation of statistic data and formulation of practical recommendations.
Implementation of scientific results: the results were approved in the frame of international scientific conferences, educational journals and didactico-scientifical publications in Moldova and Israel and were experienced in secondary institutions of Israel between 2012-2016.
