BAENA-EXTREMERA, A.; GRANERO-GALLEGOS, A.; SANCHEZ-FUENTES, J.A.  and  MARTINEZ-MOLINA, M.. Predictive model of the importance and usefulness of Physical Education. CPD [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.2, pp.121-130. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aim of this study was to understand how the perceived autonomy support, motivation and satisfaction towards Physical Education (PE), can predict the importance and usefulness of this subject. The sample consisted of 758 students (347 boys and 411 girls) of high school in the Region of Murcia, between 13 and 18 years old. The questionnaire was composed of Learning Climate Questionnaire, Sport Motivation Scale, Satisfaction Scale and Scale of Importance toward EF and EF Utility. It was performed descriptive and correlational analyzes and structural equations. The results indicate a strong motivation and satisfaction towards the subject, being always greater in boys the results of all the variables analyzed. The study demonstrates the influence of autonomy support in the importance of EF through intrinsic motivation and students satisfaction.

Keywords : autonomy support; motivation; satisfaction; Physical Education.
