THE EFFICACY OF MATHEMATICS AS A MODERATOR ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEACHER SUPPORT AND MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS' ACADEMIC ENGAGEMENT
The role of teacher support can help increase academic involvement with self-efficacy in mathematics as a moderator variable. Teacher support is a form of perception from students whether in everyday learning, the teacher supports students to help them understand mathematics. Meanwhile, self-efficacy in mathematics is a perception from within students to feel able to follow every material and solve every math problem. Research conducted on 430 students showed that perceived teacher support has a significant role, and mathematics self-efficacy is a variable moderator (MRA test technique) in academic engagement. Based on the test results using the structural Equation Model (SEM) obtained results for the perception of teacher support has a value of β = 0.18, and the multiplication value between teacher support and mathematics, self-efficacy has a value of β = 0.19.
