Reality of Students’ Engagement in Physical Education

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to build a scale allowing students to get reliable, scientific, and complete perceptions of their engagement in physical education (PE) classes. The study’s findings were based on traditional sports science research methods such as document synthesis and analysis, expert interviews, and Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient testing of the questionnaire’s reliability. To measure student engagement in physical education, the authors developed a questionnaire with 19 items covering three aspects: intellectual engagement: 06 items, cognitive engagement: 06 items, and learning engagement (active learning): 7 items. The results indicated that students have a positive perception of PE’s meaning and roles, but they are not totally involved in intelligence and active learning.
