Abstract
This study focused at adapting the students’ motivation towards science learning questionnaire (SMTSL) into the Albanian version, originally developed by Tuan, Chin, and Shieh (2005), into a different cultural context, focusing on chemistry learning subject. 366 students from natural sciences high school enrolled in 10th, 11th and 12th grade were randomly selected to participate in the study. The present study applied and confirmed the questionnaire with 35 items and 6 subscales, same as in orginal version. The questionnaires’ reliability (α.86) was acceptable for the Kosovar context and study’s findings were in compliance with the results of the previous studies. SMTSL’s factioral structure was confirmed using explanatory factor analysis. Results showed that the questionnaire is valid and six-subscales motivation construct can be applied in this study’s cultural setting and sample with reference to learning chemistry.

Key words: Motivation, science learning, chemistry learning, questionnaire adaptation
