The final path model illustrating direct and indirect effects and causal paths linking variables with motivation. GPA in HS = Grade Point Average in high school; Extrinsic m. = Extrinsic motivation; Intrinsic m. = Intrinsic motivation. Values on the lines = path coefficient or standardized coefficient; *P < 0.05, **P < .01, ***P < .001, NS = non-significant. Values on the lines were standardized regression coefficients. Value on Amotivation, Extrinsic m., and Intrinsic m. in the rectangle are percent variance explained by each variable (R2). The model fit statistics were as follows: chi-square = 24.460, df = 17, chi-square/df = 1.439, P = 0.107; comparative fit index =0.971, Tucker-Lewis Index = 0.939, and root mean square error approximation =0.057 (90%CI = 0.000–0.103)
