Examining the influence of Sport Education on the precursors of amotivation
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.
