Abstract Personal achievement goals and self-efficacy make up the motivational dimension of self-regulated learning. This research investigates the initial psychometric properties of the Achievement Goals Scale for Reading Comprehension and the Self-efficacy Scale for Reading Comprehension. The evidence-based test content validity study involved three expert judges and 16 Middle School, who pointed to the theoretical and practical adequacy of the scales. Validity evidence based on the scales’ internal structure was obtained with a sample of 522 students, using factor analysis as statistical resources. We verified the plausibility of the three-factor Achievement Goals Scale model and the one-factor Self-efficacy Scale model, and identified reasonable reliability estimates. Results indicate that the scales can be used in exploratory investigations. We suggest further research to expand its psychometric quality. (AU)
