The aim of this study is twofold; to determine effective factors in students' views about proof and to confirm proposed structural model including interrelationships of these factors and proof performance. This study not only helps instructors to gain useful insights on students' views about proof but also provides evidence on how to foster students' proof performance with respect to the identified factors.
