ABSTRACT

Self-efficacy is individual’s belief that he or she can perform some behavior or task successfully (Baron, 2001). Self-efficacy is hypothesized to affect individuals’ task choices, effort, persistence, and achievement (Bandura, 1997; Schunk, 1989). In our present research we had chosen a sample of 100 high school (10th class) female students; 50 from private schools and 50 from government schools within the age group of 14 to 18 years. Our main objective was to see if there is any statistically significant difference in the self-efficacy of the two groups or not. Mean obtained by government sample is 68.54 and by private sample are 70.84. With the help of t-test we found a significant difference in the mean score of self-efficacy between two samples at 0.05 level of significance as calculated t-ratio is 2.01 and corresponding significance value is 0.47.
