Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the factor structure of the Academic Motivation Scale (AMS) with a sample of Arab college students. Results of a confirmatory factor analysis revealed a 7-factor structure similar to the original scale. Items measuring intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, or amotivation, as specified in the original scale, loaded on their respective subscales or a single common factor. Implications for future research with the AMS among Arab populations are discussed.
