A Valid and Reliable Instruments to Measure Learning Motivation of University Students in Elementary Teacher Education

Abstract

Learning motivation encourages university students to study and carry out certain activities that foster passion and enthusiasm to achieve maximum learning goals and results. To measure learning motivation, valid and reliable measurement tools were needed. The aim of this study was to assess the construct validity and construct reliability of a newly designed university student learning motivation instrument. Using quantitative methods, 282 respondents from 5 randomly selected universities were involved in this research. Using the Lisrel 8.80 program, the data obtained were analyzed using second order confirmatory factor analysis. This variable is measured by four indicators and 20 measuring items and 4 scales, namely: Intrinsic Motivation, Amotivation, Extrinsic-Career Motivation, and Extrinsic-social motivation. The research results show that the university student learning motivation instrument is valid in terms of factor loading, convergent validity and discriminant validity, and meets the construct reliability requirements, so that the university student learning motivation instrument developed is feasible for use.
