Özet

In this study, factors that affect students' science and mathematics literacy were modeled based on the data obtained from Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA 2006). For this purpose, using principle components analysis technique, dimensions of the student questionnaires were determined. Using these dimensions for student questionnaires, latent variables such as family background, computer and software, educational materials and learning time were selected to be included in this study. According to results of modeling which was conducted by structural equation modelling using LISREL 8.7, learning time of students positive effect on science and mathematics literacy.
