The purpose of this study was to examine the structural relationships between perceptions of parents, basic psychological needs and academic burnout about students within the framework of self-determination theory.

From this population, 400 individuals selected by multistage random sampling. Data collected through Robbins`s perception of parents scale, Gagné` s Basic Needs satisfaction General Scale, and Maslach` s Burnout Inventory-Student Survey.

Data were analyzed using SPSS.25 and AMOS.24 .


 The results showed that perceptions of maternal and paternal parenting due to their basic psychological needs had an indirect and significant effect on students' academic burnout (P≥0.01). The structural model also had a good fit (c2/df=2.61; AGFI=0.91; GFI=0.95; CFI=0.96; NFI=0.93; TLI=0.94; RMSEA=0.06) and it can explain 54% of students' academic burnout variance.
