The sampling method used in this study is purposive sampling and the reason behind choosing this method was to select those samples that were closest to the standards. Since the previous studies had published good reviews about the reliability and validity the Hermans Achievement Motivation Questionnaire, it was used to measure the level of motivation of students in both regular and smart schools. Finally, the collected data and descriptive statistics including frequency, median, mean and two independent samples t-test were analyzed.
