Students’ intrinsic and extrinsic motivations for taking classes in three disciplines, human anatomy and physiology, physics, and nutrition, were explored with discipline-specific adapted versions of the Academic Motivation Scale. Information on students’ study habits and efforts, and final course grades were also collected. Results revealed the adapted versions of the Academic Motivation Scale had comparable reliabilities to previous investigations, significant differences in motivations across the three disciplines, and significant influences of motivation on academic behaviors and course performance.
