The objective of this study was to analyze self-efficacy perceptions for education software development of teacher candidates studying at Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technologies, with respect to a range of variables. The Educational Software Development Self-Efficacy Perception Scale was used as data collection tool. Sixty teacher candidates participated in the study. Independent sample t-test and canonical correlation were used as the data analysis techniques in the study. At the end of the study, it was determined that there is a weak correlation between teacher candidates' general academic performance and their self-efficacy perception for educational software development, and self-efficacy perception does not vary with gender. A significant difference in favor of 4th year undergraduates was established with respect to year of study. Also, a positive correlation was found between teacher candidates' self-efficacy perceptions in sub-dimensions of the scale and their achievement in the relevant courses.
