Abstract : The purpose of this study was to assess environmental literacy which includes the dimensions of environmental knowledge, attitudes, and behaviour among Malaysian Form 4 secondary school students. This study was also aimed to ascertain differences in environmental literacy based on students’ gender and school location. The relationships and the contribution of environmental knowledge and environmental attitudes to environmental behaviours were also studied. The ultimate goal of this study was to propose a structural model which explains the direct and indirect effects of the three dimensions of environmental literacy by using SmartPLS. This study involved administering the Environmental Literacy Survey (ELS), a version of the Green’s (1999) modified Wisconsin Environmental Survey. This study offers a snapshot of environmental literacy among Form 4 secondary school students as well as an insight on the direct and indirect effects among the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviour dimensions of environmental literacy
