Objectives: The purpose of this study was to examine the validity and the reliability of the achievement goal questionnaire-revised (Elliot and Murayama, 2008) among the Iranian student population. This instrument was applied to the 2x2 framework assessment. Methods: The questionnaires were administrated to 609 Dezful high school students. The psychometric properties were determined based on the appropriate statistical methods. Results: The Alpha coefficients were estimated in the four subscales between 0.68 and 0.79. The results of the exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the structure of the questionnaire had an adequate fitting to the data and confirmed the model. Conclusion: According to the estimated psychometric properties, this instrument can be used by the researchers in order to assess the four achievement goal orientations among the student population.
