Abstract
The purpose of this study is to determine the mathematics selfefficacy and metacognition among university students. Two hundred and three respondents from a university in Malaysia were chosen through random sampling. Descriptive research design was used in this study. The Mathematics selfefficacy and metacognition Inventory was used to measure mathematics selfefficacy and mathematics metacognition. The data was analyzed using the descriptive statistic to measure mean and standard deviation of mathematics selfefficacy and mathematics metacognition. The findings indicates that most of the respondents have a moderate level in mathematics selfefficacy and also in mathematics metacognition. Further analysis shows that there is a positive relationship between mathematics performance and mathematics selfefficacy [r(203) = 0.311; p < 0.05] and also mathematics metacognition [r(203) = 0.216; p < 0.05]. The findings obtained from the study can guide mathematics educators on the importance of mathematics selfefficacy and metacognition of university students. This is where serious attention should be given in mathematics education to ensure the production of good students in mathematics. Overall, the findings of the research gave useful implication in the mathematics profession, especially in the field of mathematics education.
