The study investigated beliefs and physical education goals associated with intentions of students without disabilities to play with a hypothetical peer with a physical disability in general physical education (GPE). The Children's Intentions to Play with Peers with Disabilities in Middle School Physical Education (CBIPPD-MPE), the Task and Ego Orientation in Sport Scale-9, and the Social Goal Scale were administered to a convenience sample of 359 participants. Structural equation modeling analyses indicated that social goals and task-involved goals significantly contributed (p less than 0.01) to positive behavioral, normative, and control beliefs. In addition, the three beliefs significantly contributed (p less than 0.01) to participants' intentions. Females had significantly higher intentions, behavioral beliefs, and social goals, whereas males had significantly higher ego-involved goals (p less than 0.05). The findings offer empirical support for consideration of social and achievement goal theories and gender in the CBIPPD-MPE model. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
