Abstract: The major purposes of this study were (1) to determine the relationship between perceived inviting (1-Type) and effective (E-Type) behaviors of physical education teachers for grades 9-12, (2) to determine differences between I-Type and E-Type teacher behaviors as perceived by students identified by their teachers as having a high or low expectancy for success in the performance of physical skills, and (3) to determine differences between 1-Type and E-Type teacher behaviors as reported by students identifying themselves as athletes or nonathletes. Included in this study was an investigation of the relationships between combinations of inviting/disinviting and effective/noneffective teacher behaviors as determined by a median score for 1-Type and E-Type teacher behaviors. Also, this study sought to determine differences between I-Type and E-Type teacher behaviors as viewed by students indicating that they had worked very hard and that they had learned very much in their physical education class.
