A questionnaire entitled Beliefs about Learning and Teaching (BALT) was designed and analysed for the purpose of investigating pre-service teachers’ beliefs about learning and teaching. The innovative feature of the BALT questionnaire is that it brings together a number of different beliefs about learning and teaching, and investigates their interrelatedness. More specifically, the questionnaire includes questions designed to investigate (1) beliefs related to learning and teaching such as, beliefs about intelligence, effort, self-efficacy; (2) beliefs about learning and teaching such as, whether learning is something that happens naturally or something that needs to be taught, and whether teaching mainly involves the transmission of information or not;(3) beliefs about Self-Regulated Learning (SRL); and (4) self-reported, SRL practices.
