Zhu, Xihe; Sun, Haichun; Chen, Ang; Ennis, Catherine – Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science, 2012
Expectancy-Value Questionnaire (EVQ) measures student expectancy beliefs and task values of the domain content (Eccles & Wigfield, 1995). In this study the authors examine measurement invariance of EVQ in the domain of physical education between elementary and middle-school students. Participants included 811 students (3rd-5th grades) from 13…
