Abstract Self-efficacy is a strong predictor of teachers' job commitment and active participation. This article presents an in-depth analysis of the soundness and validity of a theoretical model regarding the influence of personal and collective self-efficacy on two key organizational variables within the school context: job commitment and job satisfaction. The theoretical model was checked against data using structural-equation models, a statistical tool that allows an empirical test of the degree to which a theoretical model explains the empirical co-variance observed within a set of empirical data. Findings attest the validity of the proposed theoretical model.
