The paper presents the results of an experimental study, which examined the effectiveness of learning database fundamentals depending on students’ educational background as an influencing factor. In addition, a students’ knowledge perception and their actual knowledge were analyzed regarding their educational background. The results demonstrate that students’ educational background did not have an effect on the overall learning process. We also found that the background does not have the same influence on students’ self-assessment throughout the entire learning process.
