FACTORS AFFECTING ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT OF PAMULANG UNIVERSITY STUDENTS (Case Study of Mathematics Study Program Student)
This study aims to determine and analyze the factors that affect the academic achievement of students of the Mathematics and Natural Sciences Study Program, Pamulang University. The analysis uses the Structural Equation Modeling method or commonly abbreviated as SEM. In this study, the SEM method, assisted by LISREL 8.80 software and SPSS Statistics 21, was used to measure the relationship between motivation and improvement in student academic achievement, in this case the Cumulative Presence Index (GPA). The initial stage of the research, data were collected using a questionnaire and sampling technique using the Slovin method. Then the data is tested for validity and reliability in order to see the validity of the instrument's regularity fiber. After that, the data is processed using LISREL. The results obtained are the extractive factor which has an effect of 0.91 with the indicator (X₈) of the R² award of 0.32 and λ 0.57 that the motivation to get the award has an effect on academic engagement in this case the GPA. The instrumental factor is 0.06 with the indicator (X₃) of education R² of 79% and λ of 0.86. This shows that motivation is very influential on increasing the academic performance of Pamulang University students.
