Obrusnikova, Iva; Block, Martin E.; Dillon, Suzanna
Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly, v27 n2 p127-142 Apr 2010
Theory of Planned Behavior (Ajzen, 1991) was used to elicit salient behavioral, normative, and control beliefs of children without disabilities toward playing with a hypothetical peer with a disability in general physical education. Participants were 350 elementary and middle school students who completed two questionnaires. Questionnaires were assessed for content validity. Participants provided more affective (68%) than instrumental (32%) responses for favorable behavioral beliefs and more instrumental (76%) than affective (24%) responses for unfavorable beliefs. Peer social pressure was prevalent in favorable (69%) and unfavorable (99%) responses. Social pressure significantly varied across five grades, [chi][superscript 2](4, N = 448) = 40.51, p less than 0.01. Participants responded many factors in the class would positively (76%) or negatively (89%) influence the behavior. (Contains 4 tables.)
