This study assessed the motivational orientation in Chemistry of College students of Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology . The survey used in the study was the motivational checklist which was composed of three parts namely self-efficacy, intrinsic value, and test anxiety. The descriptive method of research was employed utilizing the Motivational Orientation checklists to gather data and reinforced with observations.The statistical treatment of data was confined to the Weighted Mean, Mean Difference Analysis and the Pearson Product Moment of Correlation. Results show that respondents were very high in self-efficacy, as manifested in their expectations to do well in Chemistry. There is a significant relationship between self-efficacy and intrinsic value however there are no significant differences in the motivational orientation of male and female students along with the three components. It is recommended that Chemistry teachers should devise ways and means to come up with varied styles of examinations and tests that will minimize the occurrence of test anxiety among students.


Key Words:  Motivation, self-efficacy, intrinsic value, test anxiety
