This study investigates 37 survey items concerning L2 motivation. The hypothesis is that L2 is a broad concept within which five subcategories exist. These categories are termed; effort, integrativeness, instrumental motivation, and ideal L2 self. Seven to nine survey items are written for each subcategory, and a pilot study was conducted, in which 120 university students participated. The data was analyzed for internal consistency with Cronbach’s alpha, and for unidimensionality with the Rasch model, and four poorly performing items were removed. As a result, the comprehensive survey targeted at L2 motivation was finalized with 33 items.
