Abstract

Motivating students to participate actively in physical education (PE) is often major concern for physical education teachers. As physical ability, interest levels, and effortful investment of students within PE classes can vary among students, understanding the motivational issues in this setting is particularly interesting to researchers and practitioners alike. One line of research has examined the antecedents of three broad teacher behaviors, namely provision of autonomy support, structure (i.e. clear expectations and guidelines), and involvement (i.e. personal interest in students (Ntoumanis, & Standage, 2009). Therefore, the objectives of this study are: (1) to test the hypothesis that perceived autonomy support from teachers influences students’ motivation in PE, and (2) to examine gender differences in the perceived autonomy support from the teachers. Two hundred seventy nine (n = 279) students from two public high schools participated. Results of Pearson R indicated that perceived autonomy support from teacher affects students’ intrinsic motivation, and identified regulation. In terms of gender differences, results showed that they are no significant differences in the Perceived Autonomy Support in Physical Education. Overall, results suggest that providing autonomy supportive learning environment in PE is beneficial in terms of developing more autonomous forms of motivation in students.
