Keywords:Physical self-concept, academic performance, Physical Education
The objetives of this study were to examine the factorial structure of the CAF (Questionnaire of Physical Autoconcept) in a different context of it´s creation as well as to verify the possible relations of his dimensions with the academic performance (global and in Physical Education) and if it would be possible to predict from those ones. The participants were 574 students of ESO from Valencian Community. There was carried out the confirmatory factorial, correlacional and path analysis. The results obtained reveal that the CAF shows suitable indexes of reliability and average discrimination, as well as a few acceptable indexes of adjustment, though, the questionnaire achieves a better adjustment and a bigger capacity of discrimination if an element of the same one is avoided. On the other hand, they find positive relations between all the dimensions of the questionnaire and the performance in Physical Education, and negative between some of the dimensions and the global performance.
