The subjects of this study were 145 physical education teachers. Data were collected by survey which was developed by Compeau and Higgins. This scale was translated to Turkish by researcher. Cronbach alpha was found as .87. The results of the study showed that the mean of computer self-efficacy of physical education teachers is 6.13. There was a significant positive correlation among participants' computer self-efficacy, performance outcome, personal outcome and affect and a significant negative correlation between participants' computer self-efficacy and anxiety level. The study showed that as the duration of computer usage increased, participants' computer self-efficacy level increased and anxiety level decreased.
