About Motivation to Achieve Questionnaire
The questionnaire initially contained 50 motivational items with the heading ‘Motivation to Achieve’. These were taken from the Motivation to Achieve Questionnaire developed by Waugh (2002). They were adapted and simplified to suit high school students in Malaysia.
The 50 items are set up under twelve second-order aspects:
Striving for excellence
( 1 ) Three items measuring standards
(2) Five items measuring goals
(3) Six items measuring tasks
(4) Five items measuring effort
(5) Two items measuring values
(6) Four items measuring ability
Desire to Learn
(7) Three items measuring interest
(8) Six items measuring learning from others
(9) Two items measuring responsibility for learning
( 1 0) Three items measuring extrinsic rewards
( 1 1 ) Four items measuring intrinsic rewards
( 12) Four items measuring social rewards
All these items were answered in two perspectives (what I aim for and what I actually do) in relation to motivation to achieve academically so that the same single trait was influencing all the items, and both perspectives, theoretically.
