240 employed adults in 35 organizations completed a 70 item questionnaire based on current value/expectancy theories of motivation and the results of two prior factor analyses of motivation items. This yielded a hierarchical structure of motivation and eight reliable subscales. Results are discussed in terms of motivation theories, validities, moderator effects in study designs, and future use of the questionnaire by other researchers with business-industrial samples.
