Viciana, Jesús; Mayorga-Vega, Daniel; Parra-Saldías, Maribel – European Physical Education Review, 2019
All Latin-American countries are affected by the lack of physical activity and its consequences on youth. Chile's population has shown troublingly low levels of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. This is the first study using objectively measured physical activity levels in Chilean adolescents. The objectives were to compare the compliance…

Maivorsdotter, Ninitha; Quennerstedt, Mikael – European Physical Education Review, 2019
Digitisation is an ongoing process in society as well as in physical education (PE) and research has identified digital technologies as a trend that influences the PE curriculum. A number of studies have explored the topic from different angles, although very few have empirically looked at the critical aspects of digitised PE in educational…

Haerens, Leen; Krijgsman, Christa; Mouratidis, Athanasios; Borghouts, Lars; Cardon, Greet; Aelterman, Nathalie – European Physical Education Review, 2019
Students' knowledge about the criteria for an upcoming test is a crucial component of assessment quality. Grounded in self-determination theory, we investigated whether knowledge about the criteria for an upcoming test related to students' situational motivation and experienced anxiety during physical education (PE). We also examined whether these…

Ruiz-Ariza, Alberto; Suárez-Manzano, Sara; López-Serrano, Sebastián; Martínez-López, Emilio J. – European Physical Education Review, 2019
Evidence suggests that moderate physical activity (PA) positively relates to creativity and emotional intelligence (EI) in adolescents. However, it is unknown whether cooperative PA (physical exercises in pairs or small groups to enhance motivation, self-efficacy, and pro-social behaviours), performed over less time but at higher intensity, could…

Novelty has recently been suggested as a potential basic psychological need within self-determination theory. Taking into account the lack of research on this new construct, the purpose of this study was to show the role of novelty satisfaction in physical education, analyzing its relations with some outcomes that are relevant for academic…

Roure, Cédric; Pasco, Denis – European Physical Education Review, 2018
Based on the framework of interest, studies have shown that situational interest possesses strong motivation potential for students in physical education. Understanding how teachers can use situational interest in a classroom context is critical to motivate students. However, such investigations have been exclusively conducted in the United States…
