Abstract

This study aimed to examine the influence of three constructs - mathematics classroom learning environment, students' attitude towards mathematics and academic self-efficacy in mathematics - and their influence towards students' mathematics achievement. For this purpose, a sample of 235 allied health college students was randomly selected from two campuses of Masterskill Global College (formerly known as Masterskill College of Nursing and Health). The questionnaire was a combination of three sets of inventories that had been modified to suit the purpose of study. They were the College and University Classroom Environment Inventory (CUCEI), Attitude towards Mathematics Inventory (ATMI), and College Academic Self-Efficacy Scale (CASES). Two statistical procedures were utilized to examine the demographic and data 'analyses, which were descriptives and inferential statistics. The analyses reported respondents had high and positive perception on all constructs, and there were also significant difference in respondents' perception based on campuses and mathematics achievement grades. However, all three constructs did hot significantly influence- achievement in mathematics. Thus, for future research purposes it is hope that-other contributing factors will be studied on, so as to fill this knowledge gap. Additional research could also be conducted in other allied health colleges
