The purpose of this article is to build a scale allowing students to get reliable, scientific, and complete perceptions of their engagement in physical education (PE) classes. The study’s findings were based on traditional sports science research methods such as document synthesis and analysis, expert interviews, and Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient testing of the questionnaire’s reliability. To measure student engagement in physical education, the authors developed a questionnaire with 19 items covering three aspects: intellectual engagement: 06 items, cognitive engagement: 06 items, and learning engagement (active learning): 7 items. The results indicated that students have a positive perception of PE’s meaning and roles, but they are not totally involved in intelligence and active learning.
Values that University Students Advocate Today (Published)
The values of students occupy a central position in the cognitive system and on student’s personality, because it includes components of knowledge, affective and behavioural, determining their attitudes and motivations. In order to respond to the question “what are the values of University students.” we have done a review of literature indexed in databases online, getting 23 articles published between 2008/2017. The reflection on the values of a student is of extreme importance to the educational system, due to the relationship between education and human values, resetting or recapturing the true role of the school in the formation of values. The results show that through the school it is possible to construct and develop human values in students, making it a place for this construction, without neglecting the importance of family. With the heterogeneity of methodologies of the studies, we suggest the development of more homogeneous research, materials and methods to evaluate the values of University students.
