Abstract

This mixed methods study examined (a) physical education teachers’ self-reported motivational climate and (b) students’ perceptions about the motivational climate promoted by their teachers, to identify the coherence between students’ and teachers’ views from elementary, middle, and high schools. Fifteen PE teachers (9 males, 6 females) participated in the qualitative study; 899 students (447 males, 452 females) participated in the quantitative study. The majority of teachers promoted a mastery motivational climate. Additionally, students’ reports confirmed teachers’ perceptions about the motivational climate.Subscribe to TPE
