The purpose of this study was to identify state supervisors' perceptions of teacher efficacy regarding alternatively certified/licensed secondary agriculture teachers. The researcher focused on state supervisors' perception of alternatively certified/licensed teachers' efficacy in relationship to classroom/laboratory, supervised agriculture experience programs, and the National FFA organization. The researcher chose to conduct descriptive survey. Forty five states expressed that they offered alternative certification/licensure (N = 45). The population consisted of all state supervisors of agriculture educators as listed by the 2010-2011 approved list from the American Association for Agricultural Education and the National Association of Supervisors of Agricultural Education. State supervisors disagreed that alternatively certified/licensed teachers were performing up to standards in regards to supervised agriculture experience programs. The researcher also found a statistical significance in relation to the community population in which the alternatively certified teacher was teaching in and the performance data for classroom/laboratory and FFA activities.
