This dissertation reports the development of a scale to measure childrens' and adolescents' self-perceptions regarding their involvement in those physical activities typical of youth. Self-efficacy theory is used as a perspective from which to view these perceptions. The test-retest reliability, and both the construct and predictive validity of this scale are investigated and established. The development and testing of a Participation Questionnaire and a Teacher's Evaluation form are also reported herein.
