This study explores the attributes and behaviours of high school teachers who motivate their learners best. Upon eliciting them from eighty freshmen university students, the attributes and behaviours were discussed in length in class, refined and converted into a forty-item best motivating teacher (BMT) questionnaire and administered to other four hundred and two students. The application of Principal Axis Factoring and rotating the extracted latent variables via Varimax with Kaiser Normalization showed that ten factors underlie the BMT, i.e., Confidence Building, Pleasant Behavior, Admitting Errors, Loving Learners, Planned Teaching, Success Modelling, Establishing Rapport, Loving Teaching, Lenient Evaluation, and Valuing Attempt. With the exception of Valuing Attempt consisting of only one item, the other nine factors enjoy acceptable levels of reliability. All the ten factors also correlate significantly with each other and thus establish the BMT as a reliable and factorial valid measure of teacher attributes and behaviours. The factors underlying the BMT are discussed and suggestions are made for future research.
