Abstract: 

The major objective of this study was to determine the relationship between academic performance in a statistics course and the students' attitude toward statistics, math self-concept, and attitudes toward tests. A secondary objective was to determine what relationships exist between students' attitudes toward statistics, math self-concept, and attitudes toward tests. A third objective was to investigate the relationship between students' mathematics background and attitude toward statistics, math self-concept, and attitude toward tests.
