Abstract
The purpose of present study was to examine the direct and indirect effects of mathematics beliefs on mathematics achievement. Specially, regarding to powerful predictor and mediator of mathematics selfefficacy. The subjects of the study were middle school students of the academic year 2013. 400 of 8th graders were selected from four public schools of Shiraz in Iran to estimate and test the hypothesized effects of mathematics beliefs on mathematics selfefficacy and mathematics achievement. A two stage Cluster Random Sampling Method was utilized. This study examined correlations between latent variables and their factors also determined coefficients between latent variables by using Measurement Model. Then the estimate of Structural Equation Model revealed that mathematics beliefs had a direct and an indirect effect on mathematics achievement. The model specified mathematics beliefs and mathematics achievement. The high goodnessoffit indices, also acknowledged that postulated model has a good fit to the data.
