This article looks at the instrument that assesses physical education teachers. Many instruments used to evaluate physical education teachers fail to provide data relative to the alterable teacher and student behaviors that are believed to be the current thrust of teacher effectiveness research. Researchers have stated that there is a need to develop instruments which provide data specific to alterable teacher and student behaviors in physical education classes.
