In this research study, the effect of such variables as gender, parents’ educational status, academic achievement and grade level on primary and middle school students’ intrinsic and extrinsic motivation levels were investigated. This study has a descriptive model as it aims to reveal and explain the current situation in detail. The participants of this study were primary and middle school students from different schools in Isparta. The motivation level detection scale was administered to determine the overall learning motivation of the participants. Mann–Whitney U and Kruskal–Wallis T tests were used to compare the mean scores with respect to variables. The results imply that the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation levels of the primary school students who participated in this study did not differ in their gender, academic achievement and their parents’ educational status.
