This study assessed the association between preservice teacher-related variables [i.e., age, adapted physical education (APE) and special education (SPED) coursework, experience teaching students with disabilities and perceive competence] on measures of the "Physical Educators' Intention toward Teaching Individuals with Disabilities II-Preservice Survey (PEITID-II-PS)." The "PEITID-II-PS" used the "Theory of Planned Behavior" (TpB) (Ajzen, 2002) on preservice physical education teachers (n = 213) purposely selected from universities in China, Korea, and the United States. Results indicated that both intention and perceived behavioral control were predicted by teaching experience and perceived teaching competency. Attitude toward the behavior variable was predicted by prior teaching experience, special education coursework, and age. Age and perceived teaching competency were associated with behavioral beliefs. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
