Data were collected by a researcher-made job motivation questionnaire (49 items) and analyzed by exploratory factor analysis and structural equation modeling in SPSS-22 and AMOS-24 software.
Findings: The results showed that teachers' job motivation had 2 factors and 9 components; so that the external factor of job motivation includes four components of school environment, payroll system, leadership style / managerial support and performance appraisal and reward and the internal factor of job motivation includes five components of in-service training, work and cognitive interests, effective communication, perfectionist thoughts and selection and the factor loading of both factors and all nine components were significant at the confidence level of 0.99. Also, the content validity of the instrument was confirmed by experts and the convergent validity of the instrument was confirmed by the correlation coefficient of the score of each factor or component with the total score of the instrument. In addition, Cronbach's alpha reliability for the whole instrument was 0.92, external factor of job motivation 0.85, internal factor of job motivation 0.89 and components of school environment 0.75, payroll system 0.66, leadership style / managerial support 0.91, performance appraisal and reward 0.65, in-service training 0.82, work and cognitive interests 0.90, effective communication style 0.81, perfectionist thoughts 0.83 and selection was 0.71.
