Examining the influence of Sport Education on the precursors of amotivation

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of Sport Education on the constructs that

    facilitate amotivation. A total of 78 amotivated secondary students were engaged in a 15-lesson

    unit of badminton taught using the Sport Education or skill-drill-game approach. Constructs that

    facilitate amotivation were assessed using the Amotivation Inventory in Physical Education survey

    using a pre-test and post-test design. Data were analysed using linear mixed modelling. Results

    indicated that Sport Education brought about a significant change for half of the pre-cursors of low

    levels of motivation. These findings indicate support for the notion that Sport Education can

    facilitate positive change for students with low levels of motivation.
