Maximum Likelihood was used to estimate while Chi-square/degrees of freedom, Goodness of Fit Index, Normal Fit Index, Tucker-Lewis Index, Comparative Fit Index, and Root Mean Square Error of Approximation indices were used to evaluate the goodness of fit of the hypothesized models. The best fit model for the mathematics achievement of pre-service teachers is best anchored on aptitude supported by school environment. Academic buoyancy is necessary but insufficient for mathematics achievement.</p>}, number={2}, journal={Journal of Education in Black Sea Region}, author={Gellor, Joamel P.}, year={2019}, month={May}, pages={96–115} }
