Introduction: Academic motivation can be perceived as a factor in deciding to continue academic education. One of the new models in this area is Jones’s model of academic motivation (MUSIC). This study aimed to test the seven-factor structure of this motivation model in medical sciences students.

Methods: This descriptive study was conducted on 378 students (197 females and 181 males) of Urmia University of Medical Sciences who were selected through cluster sampling method. Data were collected using Jones and Wilkins’s 26-item students’ motivation questionnaire. Amos-16 software was used for the correlation matrix analysis and confirmatory factor analysis.

Results: A positive significant correlation existed among the components of the model. Goodness of fit indices showed that the seven-factor model provides a good fit of students’ academic motivation.

Conclusion: The seven-factor structure of academic motivation (MUSIC) model can be highly useful in developing and promoting students’ academic motivation and participation.
