This study sought to test how TPB variables interact to predict physical activity (PA) in children.

The aim of this study was to identify factors leading teachers (N=336) to report that they create such a climate. We conducted a path analysis in…

The model is based on the assumption that a teacher's judgment in a particular discipline is influenced by different variables: the pupil's actual performance in the discipline, his/her actual performance in other disciplines (halo effect), the average…
