Abstract:


This study was conducted in order to determine the computer self-efficacy perceptions of gifted students. The research group of this study is composed of gifted students (N=36) who were studying at the Science and Arts Center in Gümüshane province in the spring semester of the 2012-2013 academic year. The “Computer Self- Efficacy Perception Scale for Elementary School Students”, which was developed by Isıksal and Askar (2003), was used as a data collection tool in the study. In view of this study, it was found that computer self-efficacy perceptions of the gifted students were high. Furthermore, it was found that computer self-efficacy perceptions of the gifted students differed in favor of male students. No significant difference was observed when computer self-efficacy perceptions of the gifted students were examined in terms of class level.
