Abstract: Validity of the Spanish version of the Echelle de Motivation en Education. A measure of motivation toward education has been developed in French, namely the Echelle de Motivation en Education (EME) and based on the principles of self-determination theory. The aim of this study was to translate in Spanish and to validate the EME completed by 636 University students. The Spanish version of the scale renamed Escala de Motivacion Educativa (EME-E) has showed satisfactory levels of internal consistency and temporal stability over a seven weeks period. The results of a confirmatory factor analysis confirmed the seven-factor structure of the EME-E. Finally, gender differences were obtained. These findings support the use of the Spanish version of the EME for the assessment of motivation in education.
