This research shows the application of the Structured Equation Modelling (SEM) to obtain the best model for studying the relationship between the more efficient and accurate against the findings and the interpretation of the variables.

The main objective of the study is in parcel admonished to enlighten reliability model that contains relationships between variables, science and mathematics attitude toward Malaysian student’s achievement to test validity construct of the research.

Validity and reliability of the measurement model in the analysis using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) method. Based on the results obtained, all indices meet standardized metric and assessment tools have proven to be a good instrument.

The results show that there are three factors that influence student’s mathematics performance with the different type of attitude. Analysis found that the integration of belief, effort and self-efficacy factors constitute a strong association to estimate a complete structured equation model while supported by demographic factors such as gender and parents education level.
