Students answer by marking the color that identified their perceptions of learning and enjoyment during the class (red = little, yellow = some, or green = much). Validation of the content through agreement and consensus of 10 expert judges. The expert judges gave the question of learning perception an assessment of 8.70 and the question of enjoyment perception an assessment of 8.80. Through the results obtained, the following conclusion can be established: the "traffic light" questionnaire has content validity for evaluating the student´s perception of learning and enjoyment in physical education classes.
