Abstract

The hypothesis for this study is that there is a positive correlation between self-efficacy and test performance. The participants will be 20 female students and 20 male students from the Psychology department at WOU, ages 18-24. The research design will be a between subjects design. The independent variable, self-efficacy, will be manipulated by what the researcher says to the participants prior to giving them the test. The dependent variable, test performance, will be measured by the number of questions answered correctly on the test. The results are expected to show that higher self-efficacy leads to better test performance.
