英文摘要: The Strength of Motivation for Medical School-Revised (SMMS-R) questionnaire measures students’ motivation for studying medicine. It includes three subscales: ‘willingness to sacrifice’, ‘readiness to start’, and ‘persistence’. Measurement invariance is a prerequisite for group comparisons. The objectives of this study were to verify the factorial structure of the SMMS-R questionnaire and to investigate it’s measurement invariance.
