This study aims to analyze the attitudes of students studying computer programming
through the distance education regarding programming, and their self-efficacy for
programming and the relation between these two factors. The study is conducted with
104 students being thought with distance education in a university in the north region of
Turkey in spring semester of 2013-2014 academic years. Attitude Scale toward Computer
Programming (AStCP) and Computer Programming Self-Efficacy Inventory (CPSEI) are
used as data collecting tool. The study is conducted within the descriptive scanning
model. The data collected during the study is analyzed with Mann Whitney U test,
independent t-test and Pearson Correlation coefficient for answering the research
questions. According to the results of the study the attitudes of the students regarding
programming are generally positive and their self-efficacy for programming are at high
level. There is statistically important difference in the attitudes of students regarding
programming in accordance with their gender and grade level. Accordingly, their selfefficacy
differentiates statistically by these two variables. Finally, it is concluded that
there is a positive relation in average level between the attitudes of the students
regarding programming and their self-efficacy for programming.
