## Abstract

Path analysis is a structural equation modelling (SEM) technique that

examines structural or causal models with observed variables. Path

analysis is used in this study in an exploratory rather than a

confirmatory way to identify student level and school level factors that

influence the Literacy and Numeracy performance of students using the

available data. In this investigation path analysis with partial least

squares using the computer program PLSPATH Version 3.01 (Sellin,

1990) is employed to examine the influence of various factors on the

Literacy and Numeracy performance of the students and schools

involved in this study.

Partial least squares path analysis with latent variables is a general

technique for estimating the path coefficients in path models that is

extremely useful in situations with large amounts of data and a relative

scarcity of theoretical knowledge (Sellin, 1995). Thus the path analysis

strategy requires the development of an appropriate structural or causal

model and the testing of that model (Falk and Miller, 1992; Sellin..

1990; 1995;). The model involves latent constructs or variables (LVs)

(indirectly observed), drawn as circles in Figure 5.1, and manifest

variables (MVs) (directly observed), drawn as boxes, that specify inner

and outer model relationships respectively. The inner model is defined

as "the relationships between unobserved or latent variables (LVs)",
