Objective: An Achievement Task Value Scale (Lou, Lin, & Lin, 2012) Spanish Language Adjusted Version, assessing task value items corresponding to importance, utility, interest and cost was evaluated regarding its psychometric properties, in a sample of Argentine students. Method: In order to assess internal structure, exploratory and confirmatory strategies have been used. Besides, scales convergence was assessed by relating them with a task value one-dimensional scale. Evidences of criterion validity were supported through the relating of scales with enjoyment, achievement goals, and attention. Finally, internal consistency was estimated using Cronbach’s Alpha and Omega coefficients. Conclusions: Results allow to state that this version of the instrument makes possible to assess, in a reliable and valid way, three components of task-value: utility, interest, and cost.
