Summary: The main purpose of this study was to examine the effects of fifth-graders' MSE on their mathematical achievement in school, as well as examining the effects of family socio-economic status, and parenting styles on MSE. A students' background sheet and a mathematics self-efficacy instrument were administered to 1244 fifth-graders for gathering data, associated with their mathematical achievement scores in school. Corresponding statistical analyses were applied to the obtained data. The findings showed that fifth-graders' family SES and parenting styles were ascertained as critical elements in the development of their mathematics self-efficacy. It also revealed that their MSE ratings could effectively predict their mathematics achievement. Consequently, suggestions derived from findings and discussions were proposed for further improvement of these fifth-graders' mathematics self-efficacy and the future study.
