Özet

The purpose of this study is to analyze university students' general self-efficacy perception according to "gender", "the place which the students spent most of their lives", "perceived mother attitude", "perceived father attitude" and "efficiency perception of high school education and school life". The study group of the research consists of 628 first year undergraduate students with various undergraduate departments in Ankara. In collecting the data related to the independent variables, Personal Information Form developed by the researchers has been used; in collecting the data related to the students' general self-efficacy perception, the General Self-Efficacy Scale has been used. The obtained data is analyzed with t-test for comparing dyadic groups; one way analysis of variance for multiple groups. According to the results, the university students' general self-efficacy perception differs significantly in terms of "the place which the students spent most of their lives", "perceived mother attitude", "perceived father attitude" and "efficiency perception of high school education and school life"; but does not differ significantly according to gender. In accordance with this obtained data, the results have been discussed and advice have been given.
