This study aimed to determine the factors affecting performance in basic statistics course. Respondents were randomly selected from the Statistics 11 students of the first semester of school year 2016-2017. Results revealed that students have a positive attitude towards statistics. Sex and year level of students have direct effects on attitude towards the difficulty of the subject, which in turn have indirect effects on the students’ performance in statistics. Also, degree of students, performance in math, schedule of classes, attitude towards the value of the subject, and attitude towards the difficulty of the subject have direct effects on the students’ performance in statistics. Instructors should align and personalized the examples and applications along the degree of students to develop the value of statistics among students.
