Motivational Correlates for Physical Education Class Participation of College Students

Jonar Tumali Martin

Abstract

The study investigated the association between goal orientation and self-determination in the physical education class of college students from three major private universities in Angeles City, Philippines. This cross-sectional study comprised a random sample of 114 college students, male (n=47) and female (n=67), with a mean age of 16.89 (SD=2.01). Participants answered the Perception of Success Questionnaire (POSQ; Roberts et al., 1998) and the Sports Motivation Scale (SMS; Pelletier et al. 1995). Descriptive and correlation statistical analyses were conducted. Findings reveal that students’ ego orientation was found moderate while the task orientation of the students was found to be high. The self-determination motivation of the students was found to be moderately high, with intrinsic motivation scoring higher which indicates more self-determined motivation. Both ego and task-orientation are associated with extrinsic and intrinsic motivation. A stronger relationship existed between ego and extrinsic motivation while a stronger relationship existed between task-orientation and intrinsic motivation. This study may provide baseline data that authorities in Physical Education (PE) may use in identifying relevant curricular programs and teaching approaches that could assist efforts in fostering motivation to participate in lifelong physical activities.
