Abstract:Research has not yet investigated students’ self-efficacy levels’ effects on their reception of opposing feedback in quiz activities. More precisely, whether they accept or reject this type of feedback. Therefore, this study aims to investigate this effect via a quiz-like survey. To test this, an online quiz and self-efficacy questionnaire were created and distributed via various platforms to university students over the age of 18. Respondents were selected via a convenience sampling method due to the survey targeting a wide group. Responses were analyzed using a correlation matrix, a t-test and an ANCOVA. The results indicated that while there were various trends between self-efficacy and quiz scores, no significant differences were found between the levels of self-efficacy and opposing feedback. Furthermore, the findings denote that participants with higher self-efficacy had more correct answers given in the quiz than those with low-self efficacy. However, there is a lack of concrete evidence to ensure that self-efficacy levels play a role in their acceptance or rejection of opposing feedback. Therefore, it is essential to further investigate the relationship between students’ self-efficacy levels and their opposing feedback reception. As well as how these factors may aid in future studies regarding education.
