Methods: The study was conducted in four steps of translation, face and content validity, exploratory factor analysis, and reliability assessment. Results: The final version of the Persian version has 38 items. Ten factors with an eigenvalue more than one were extracted. Internal consistency of the scale was 0.75. Item-total correlation ranged from 0.33 to 0.7 for all items and the mean item-total correlation was between 2.20 and 2.90. Conclusion: The Persian version of ASICS showed appropriate psychometric properties. It can be used to assess the academic success of Iranian college students.
