Ilda Özdemir, Dilber Polat

Abstract


The aim of this study is to predict science teachers’ professional burnout and competence variables with artificial neural network. Therefore burnout, self-efficacy and competence surveys were carried out to science teachers. An artificial neural network has been established with the data obtained. According to the findings, self-efficacy and competence of science teachers may be forecasted professional burnout at various rates. Predictions of the network for the three dimensions of burnout: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and personal accomplishment is as follows: The performance of network is 40% for “emotional exhaustion”, is 50% for “personal success”, is about 20% for “depersonalization” and is 80% for “competence”. Finally, according to all the results of the study, some suggestions have been developed.
