The aim of research is to determine the primary school fourth-grade students' self-efficacy beliefs towards writing skill. Writing self-efficacy beliefs of primary school fourth graders have been analyzed by gender, condition of receiving pre-school education, and favorite class. The data of the study were obtained from 364 primary school students in Yerköy district of Yozgat province. As data collection means "Writing Self-Efficacy Scale for Primary School Students" was employed. Data of the research were collected by the researchers in the fall term of the academic year 2018-17. When the research findings are taken into consideration, it is seen that both the levels of general writing self-efficacy beliefs and the levels of competence in writing, deliberate writing and freewriting of the students are high. Self-efficacy belief of female students is significant and higher, as compared to male students. It has been realized that the condition of having received pre-school education reveals a significant difference only in the sub-dimension of deliberate writing. In the research, only primary school fourth-graders have been included. In different studies, writing self-efficacy belief levels of both primary and secondary school students can be evaluated in terms of different variables.
