Abstract or Summary
  • This study was to determine the common competencies needed in physical education graduate curricula as perceived by physical education teachers and other physical educators in Thailand, to determine if differences existed among three groups of physical educators on the Importance of Content and Level of Learning of the selected competencies, and to determine the major clusters of the competencies for Importance of Content and Level of Learning. The instrument was validated through the Delphi technique. The computed reliability coefficients for each of two scales were found to be +.945 and +.937, respectively. The final questionnaire contained 56 competencies, with a five-point Likert-type scale to determine Importance of Content and a six-point scale to determine Level of Learning. Instruments were distributed to a random sample of 296 physical education teachers and other physical educators in Thailand. A one-way analysis of variance was applied for the hypothesis testing. Tukey's test was used where appropriate. R-mode factor analysis was utilized to cluster competencies. The following major findings were noted: For the Importance of Content, 43 competencies were selected by-all three groups as being of great importance and were considered to be essential to the physical education master's degree curriculum; 13 were of moderate importance. For the Level of Learning, 17 competencies were rated at the "analysis" level and 39 were selected at the "application" level. Competencies identified as needing the most emphasis for Importance of Content and Level of Learning related to the concepts of Measurement Techniques, and Teaching and Coaching Strategies. A five-factor solution for Importance of Content extracted 45 competencies with factor loadings of +.40 or higher. A five-factor solution of the Level of Learning extracted 35 competencies with factor loadings of +.40 or higher. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that all competencies in the study be included in physical education master's degree programs in Thailand. Instruction should be provided up to and including the specified Level of Learning, and the generated clusters of competencies should be used as a framework in developing graduate curricula in Thailand.
