Abstract: This study investigates the effects of academic self-efficacy on academic performance in the introduction to accounting course. We developed a survey instrument to measure the level of self-efficacy based on prior research. The sample consists of 106 students from a public university in Turkey. Our results suggest that academic self-efficacy is significantly related to the academic performance. Moreover, the results show that the instruction language is also a predictor of academic success.
