Based in Teo and Zhou’s Extended Technology Acceptance Model as a useful frame for describing and understanding the beliefs on technology integration of the science teachers. This paper addresses the need for a survey instrument designed to measure the beliefs on integrate technology of the Science Teachers in the physics classrooms. The paper describes survey development process and results from a pilot study on 93 junior high school science teachers. Data analysis procedures included Cronbach’s alpha statistics on the E-TAM constructs and confirmatory factor analysis was conducted in the entire instrument. Results suggest that, with the modification based from content experts’ recommendations and deletion of 9 of the survey items from the initial 30 items, the scale is a reliable and valid instrument that will help education specialist implement a professional development program which could enhance the intention and ultimately the practices on technology integration in Physics classroom.
