Data were analyzed by correlation, regression analysis and structural equation modeling using SPSS 22 and Amos 22 software.
Results: Results showed a significant correlation between competence, self-efficacy of classroom management, the attitudes and beliefs on classroom control, and demographic factors (teaching experience and degree) with together (p<0/01). The finding of analysis of regression also showed competency scale can predict attitudes and beliefs on classroom control (P<0.01). Moreover based on structural model, the predicted rate of classroom management attitude through competency was 0.56 (Gamma =0.56).
