Title: Boys' perceptions of physical education and physical activity in the eleven-to-thirteen age group
Authors: Palmer, Melvin E.
Issue Date: 1994
Publisher: © Melvin Ernest Palmer
Abstract: The purpose of the study was to investigate boys’ attitudes towards physical activity and physical education; to identify their likes and dislikes and to examine the influences affecting boys perceptions of physical education; highlighting differences between two academically different ability sets. It became evident that the development of a realistic questionnaire was necessary to collect accurate information from children with relatively low intellect. This resulted in the creation of the "Brainteaser Questionnaire" which became a large area of concern within the thesis. The data were collected over a period of 12 months from 120 boys aged between 11 and 13 years who attended a South Yorkshire Comprehensive School. [Continues.]
