Hasanah, R. S., Sholihin, H., & Nugraha,I

Based on PISA 2018 result, the science achievement of Indonesian students was below average. Some factors influence students’ achievement in learning science, such as motivation, emotion regulation, selfefficacy, and school system. This study investigates students’ selfefficacy in learning science in different school systems. The present investigation aims to discover students’ selfefficacy levels in public and private schools. By looking at students’ selfefficacy levels, this study determines its correlation with science achievement. There were 170 public school students and 107 private school students in Bandung City involved in the study. This study employed a correlational research design to determine the correlation between two variables. The correlation analysis was done in each school. Thus, Spearmanrank correlational analysis was used to investigate the correlation between the two variables in three public schools and two private schools. Also, Personcorrelational analysis was used for the other private school. The results show that students’ selfefficacy in public and private schools was in the medium levels. Seventyeight point eight publicschool students and 76.6% of private school students were classified at the medium level. However, there was no correlation between students’ selfefficacy and their achievement in learning science both in public and private schools.
