ABSTRACT
The Teacher Concerns Questionnaire (TCQ) was administered to 77 British preservice physical educators prior to and following teaching practice. Confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the TCQ is a poorly fitting instrument for data of British preservice physical educators. A subsequent profile analysis based on pretest-posttest factor structures was conducted to analyze developmental shifts in concerns due to experience and reported nonsignificant differences between cohorts, based on teacher education program and experience. The need for a more sensitive TCQ for preservice physical educators and the applicability of the TCQ in identifying developmental shifts are discussed.
