Development and Validation of the Moral Orientation of Students in Physical Education Questionnaire (MOSPEQ)
Proios, Miltiadis
Educational Research and Evaluation, v16 n3 p249-268 Jun 2010
The purpose of the present study was to develop and validate an instrument assessing the moral orientation of physical education students. Three types of validity (content, construct, and criterion oriented) were used. Two hundred and sixty-nine physical education students (males n = 128 and females n = 141; M[subscript age] = 14.94) filled in 3 questionnaires: moral orientation assessment (Moral Orientation Students in Physical Education Questionnaire [MOSPEQ]), dispositional goal orientation assessment (Task and Ego Orientation in Sports Orientation Questionnaire [TEOSQ]), and attitudes towards sportspersonship (Multidimensional Sportspersonship Orientation Scale [MSOS]). MOSPEQ demonstrated both positive reliability and strong factorial validity. Construct validity research yielded predicted relations within predisposition for the achievement of goal orientation and behaviors characterized by fairness. We discuss the use of the scale to measure moral orientation in physical education students. (Contains 6 tables.)
