The purpose of this study was to compare the flip learning method with the traditional method in academic achievement and self-efficacy of primary school students. The sample size was selected according to Morgan table using simple random sampling. To collect the data, Gink and Morgan's self-efficacy questionnaire (1999) and student's learning measurement were performed using a researcher-made academic achievement test.

To analyze the data, descriptive statistics and inferential statistics of covariance were used. The results of this study indicate that the mean scores of academic achievement and self-efficacy of students who received the flip learning method were significantly higher than the average grades of students who used the traditional method.
