Leandro Navas Martínez, Francisco Pablo Holgado, José Antonio Soriano, Gonzalo Sampascual Maicas


The Attributional Questionnaire for Physical Education was elaborated for the student's causal attributions evaluation in physical education classes. It was assumed that the attributions for the subjects's outcomes has an effect on their expectancies and on the effort that provides on the performance (Weiner, 1986, 1992, 1996). The sample were 574 secondary education students who completed the Attributions Questionnaire for Physical Education. Were carried out exploratory factorial analysis, realibity and discrimination analysis, and confirmatory factorial analysis. The results showed that to exist two factors, internal and external attributions, the questionnaire's reability was acceptable, and the obteined values for the several goodness of fit indexes corresponding to completely standardized solution permits to conclude that the model fit the data, and evidences of the questionnaire's construct validity were obtained.
