Abstract: The purpose of this study was to develop a behaviorally anchored rating scale for obtaining student feedback about teaching behaviors of physical education teachers. A second purpose of this study was to use additional rating data to ascertain the psychometric properties of the BARSSPET. Four hundred and eighty-eight students and 14 teachers in six independent subject groups participated in the development of the BARSSPET. In part one of the study, the steps included (a) generation of behavioral statements, (b) editing of the behavioral statements, (c) rating of the behavioral statements, (d) dimension identification, (e) allocation and value assignment, and (f) final selection of anchors and dimensions.
