Online Submission, US-China Education Review v6 n7 p45-60 Jul 2009
The purpose of the present study was twofold, namely implementing a multifunctional (self-) evaluation instrument for physical education in a sample of Flemish secondary schools (N=100), while simultaneously obtaining a preliminary picture of the subjects' product and process quality. Descriptive statistics revealed that P. E. teachers' engagement with regard to the provision of quality school physical education is in essence restricted to initiatives and agreements that directly influence the personal class room setting, while general quality management principles and/or initiatives (e.g., strategic planning), aimed at assuring and/or improving the subjects' overall professionalism, status and/or situation, are at present in many schools underdeveloped. From the perspective of introducing general quality management principles in school physical education, a large majority of participating P. E. teachers exhibit great interest in and appreciation for the IKLO-instrument (Instrument for quality analysis of school physical education). When applied correctly, this instrument is considered to be a valuable asset for the future of school physical education. Core section of the questionnaire is appended. (Contains 2 figures and 5 tables.)
