The next analysis involved computing composite variables from the items designated to measure "Intention to teach EfS", "Attitudes towards EfS" and "Perceived behavioural control of EfS" to find out whether the part of the TOPB tested by this group of questions was upheld by results.
As is shown in Table 4, there is a significant relationship between the intention to teach EfS and attitudes about the desirability of the behaviour r = .51 (p <.01) and intention to teach EfS and perceived behavioural control, r = .43 (p <.01) validating the TOPB. It seems then that these pre-service teachers are both confident about being able to include EfS in their teaching and have a desire to do so, believing that this is a desirable and necessary thing to do for their students.
TOPB posits that attitudes, subjective norms, and perceived behavioral control are influenced by corresponding salient beliefs.
