The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between academic self-efficacy and demographic variables in students of Kurdistan and Islamic Azad universities of Sanandaj during the academic year of 2011-2012.
Materials & Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out on 398 students of Kurdistan University of Medical Sciences and Islamic Azad University in Sanandaj during the academic year of 2015-2016. Sampling method was clustered. Demographic information form and academic self-efficacy questionnaire were used to collect data. Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 20 and descriptive and inferential statistics including mean, standard deviation, independent t-test and one-way analysis of variance were analyzed.
Results: The mean score of academic self-efficacy of students was 100 ± 64.41 ± 12.04. Two groups of students in Kurdistan University of Medical Sciences (64.49 ± 12.13) and Islamic Azad University of Sanandaj (11.57 ± 63.90) did not have a significant difference in self-efficacy scores (p=0.65). There was a significant difference between academic self-efficacy and mother's job (p = 0.004) and household economic status (p = 0.02).
