Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to develop a motivation scale to measure level of motivation for government employees in e-learning . Based on the results of a literature review, three dimensions of learners' motivation related to performance were identified; 1) academic self-efficacy, 2) task value, and 3) perceived choice. The study was conducted with eleven items and administered to 290 learners. For items analysis, EFA(Exploratory factor analysis) was performed with 145 participants in Study 1. In order to validate the scale in Study 2, CFA(Confirmatory factor analysis) were conducted to the last 145 participants. This research reports the reliability and validity of the new scale. A follow-up study is in progress to identify the relationship between motivation status and learning outcomes.
