The main objective of the research related to school discipline has been searching and testing of different intervention strategies to combat the misbehavior of students, and as a starting point, collect a range of misbehaviors that disturb the class environment to develop guidelines for action to control it. There are several specific instrument to investigate disciplinary problems, and its emphasize different aspects of the disciplinary incident. Within these, we must note that developed by Kulinna, and Recualos Cothran (2003), "Physical Education Classroom Management Instrument" includes and evaluates all the types of misbehaviors in the area of physical education. This instrument also provides situations that are specific in PE clases, and taking into account also the perception of students and teachers. The instrument developed and empirical research carried by these authors, is eligible to carry out their adaptation to the Spanish context, and to develop a instrument to the perception of families around these issues . Through this questionnaire can solve one of the first questions that arises when dealing with conflicts that arise in physical education classes: what inappropriate behavior is detected in the sessions, and how often are perceived from the point of view of different groups, as a first step towards responding in an appropriate and consistent with this type of behavior. This communication addresses cultural adaptation of this questionnaire to the Spanish context and the creation of a version for family members as recommended by the Carretero-Dios and Pérez (2007), being specified in the procedures described.
