ABSTRACT
Mor The present study investigated factors affecting the efficacy of elementary, guidance (pre-high school) and high school principals in karaj, Iran, Education Department. Research method is descriptive and correlational. The population under study included managers from different academic courses in four areas of education who were working in Karaj in the academic year 2010-2011. Out of the total population of 727 male and female managers, 296 participants were selected using statistical formulas and the stratified random sampling from four areas of education Karaj. The data were collected through questionnaires based on the four factors of Bandura's psychology theory. The questionnaire was validated by alpha (p =0.86). Descriptive statistics were used including frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation and variance, and inferential statistics including independent t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient, One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) in SPSS. The results of the analysis indicated that: (a) emotional and physical states (b) verbal or social persuasion, (c) substitute experience, and (d) successful experience were significantly and positively related to self-efficacy. However, variables such as gender and principals' years of service did not show any significant relationship to self-efficacy (p>0/05). Thus, H0was confirmed. Also, principals' current educational year, and their self-efficacy were found to be significantly and positively related.
