Abstract

This research aims to determine the relationship between the dimensions of self-efficacy and students' mathematical literacy. The participants in this research were 103 grade 11 students at SMA N 1 Gandapura Bireuen. This research is in the form of an expository with a quantitative approach. Data was collected through self-efficacy questionnaires and mathematical literacy questions. Analysis of this research data used SEM PLS assisted by the Smart-PLS. The research results show that the dimensions of generality and strength significantly correlate with athematic literacy and are in a strong category. The magnitude dimension is significantly related to mathematic literacy but is in the medium category. Such conditions indicate the need to increase attention to the magnitude dimension by aspiring to authentic learning.
