Abstract

The Theory of Planned Behavior (TpB) measures the effect that individuals' behavioral belief normative belief and control beliefs have on their intentions to perform a specific behavior The purpose of this study was to examine: (a) whether the TpB could predict physical educators' intentions and (b) whether physical educators' intentions and control beliefs could predict their self-reported teaching behavior. A sample of 220 physical educators completed the questionnaire. Stepwise multiple regression analysis revealed that the TpB significantly predicted physical educators' intentions, F(3, 216) = 57.21, p < .01. However, only intention was a significant predictor of physical educators'self-reported behavior in teaching students with disabilities, F(2, 123) = 34.04, p < .01.
