Introduction: The aim of this study was to verify whether the six-dimension structure of the Physical Self-Concept Questionnaire is maintained with Chilean students, and to assess its psychometric qualities in this population. Method: One thousand seven hundred sixty-seven students took part in this research, from Central and South Chile; 45.8% were boys and 54.2% girls, with an average age of 18.39 years. Confirmatory factor, reliability and discrimination analyses were conducted. Results: The results showed that the theoretical model fits the data adequately and that the factor structure is reproduced; the factors are reliable, thus providing further evidence for the validity of the questionnaire model. Discussion and Conclusion: The Physical Self-Concept Questionnaire has proved to be useful for the assessment of physical self-concept of students in Chile. Furthermore, it appears that there is a higher order structure with second-order factors that would account for the first order factors.
