Background and Objectives: Improvement of one’s competencies leads to a higher quality of life. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the effectiveness of positivity education on the students’ perception of competence and quality of life.
Materials and Methods: This is a  quasi-experimental study with pre-test and post-test design and a control group. The statistical population consisted of all fifth and sixth-grade students of Chabahar city, Iran, in the academic year 2020-2021 from whom 30 people were selected through convenience sampling method. The study population was divided into two experimental (n=15) and control (n=15) groups and both groups responded to Harter’s Perceived Competence and Ravens-Sieberer et al. Quality of Life scales. The students in the experimental group were educated about positivity (based on Seligman et al.) for eight sessions, each taking 60 min; however, the control group did not receive any education. Data were analyzed using SPSS software (Version 22) and multivariate analysis of covariance at the significance level of α=0.05.
