dc.description.abstract Adolescents’ Perception of Parental Involvement Scale (APPIS) and Achievement Goal Questionnaire (AGQ) were administrated to a sample (N = 300) of Egyptian high school students to investigate the effect of students' perception of parental involvement on their achievement motivation. Parental involvement was investigated as a multidimensional concept that covers home, school, and community according to three main concepts in Bronfenbrenner's ecological systems theory. These concepts are phenomenology, microsystem, and mesosystem. Achievement motivation was investigated as a tripartite construct that includes performanceapproach goal, mastery goal, and performance-avoidance goal according to Elliot's approach and avoidance achievement motivation model.Students' perception of parental involvement was found to differ significantly by the type of parental involvement and parents' educational level. There was a significant univariate interaction effect between the type of parental involvement and parents' educational level on students' perception of parental involvement at school, while there were non-significant univariate interaction effects on students' perception of parental involvement at home and within community respectively.Students' achievement motivation was found to differ significantly by students' gender and grade. There was a significant univariate interaction effect between students' gender and grade on students' performance-avoidance goal, while there were non-significant univariate interaction effects on students' performanceapproach goal, and mastery goal respectively.Students' perception of parental involvement was found to differ significantly by students' gender and grade. There were significant univariate interaction effects between students' gender and grade on students' perception of parental involvement at home, and within community respectively, while there was a non-significant univariate interaction effect on students' perception of parental involvement at school.Students' perception of parental involvement at home has a statistically significant relationship with students' perception of parental involvement at school, within the community, and mastery goal, while it has a statistically non-significant relationship with performance-approach goal, and performance-avoidance goal. Students' perception of parental involvement at school has a statistically significant relationship with students' perception of parental involvement within the community,and mastery goal, while it has a statistically non-significant relationship with performance-approach goal, and performance-avoidance goal. Students' perception of parental involvement within the community has a statistically non-significant relationship with students' performance-approach goal, mastery goal, and performance-avoidance goal. Students' performance-approach goal has a statistically significant relationship with students' performance-avoidance goal, however it has a statically non-significant relationship with mastery goal. Students' mastery goal has a statistically non-significant relationship with their performance-avoidance goal.
