The instrument of mathematics enrolment choice motivation (MECM) is designed to measure factors that influence student’s decisions to keep or drop mathematics in Year 11. Using survey responses from 289 Year 11 students, this paper presents the initial form of the instrument, examines its factor structure, internal consistency and discriminant power. The preliminary psychometric evidence supports the proposal of a reduced form with five scales for self-concept, self-efficacy, subjective value, anxiety and learning experience in mathematics. With a clearer factor structure and better item information characteristics, the short form is more practical for use with senior secondary students.
