Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the reliability and validity of an instrument for gathering perceptions of physical education teaching behaviors. A subsequent purpose was to describe differences of perceptions of teaching behaviors of teachers and students within secondary physical education classes. Within the study, answers were sought for two questions which pertained to the establishment of validity and reliability of the instrument and the examination of factors that might be found in the instrument. Two other questions examined the differences of perceptions between teachers and students and between male and female students. Eight randomly selected secondary physical education teachers and 197 secondary students from the Greensboro City Schools system participated in the study during the week of September 22-29, 1980. Teachers and students completed the Daniel Teacher Behavior Perception Scale (DTBPS) which was administered during the first part of class.
