Abstract [en]

Objective: The aim of the present research is to analyze the role of memory self-efficacy on the function of episodic and semantic memory among malem and female students.

Method: A sample comprising 16 female and 16 male psychology undergraduate students from Tarbyat Moalem University was selected using cluster sampling from among six groups of psychology, educational technology, curriculum planning, counseling and guidance, educational basis, and educational administration. Episodic memory was examined using test of recalling high and low frequency words as well as famous and non-famous images. Semantic memory was evaluated using mobility and classification vocabulary tests. A 2 X 2 factor design (two genders and two self-efficacy levels) was used.

Results: ANOVA results showed a significant difference in episodic memory between students’ high and low self-efficacy. In other words, higher memory self-efficacy leads to a better function of episodic memory. There is no significant difference in semantic memory between students with high and low self-efficacy.

Conclusion: The interaction of gender and self-efficacy factors had no significant effects on the function of semantic and episodic memory.
