This study focused on the analysis about the effects of secondary school students' professional maturity levels on their academic motivations. The sampling consisted of 607 secondary school students studying at high schools in Ankara. The data were collected through the "Academic Motivation Scale" developed by Bozanoglu (2004) along with the "Professional Maturity Scale" developed by Kuzgun and Bacanli (1991). The findings obtained were used to evaluate the changes in the academic motivation levels of secondary schools students in terms of their grade levels as well as the effects of their professional maturity levels on their academic motivations. The Crobach alpha reliability coefficient of the Academic Motivation Scale was found to be .86 and the reliability coefficient value for the Professional Maturity Scale was .89. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
