From knowledge to performance in physical teacher education: A Delphi study and a pretest for the content validation of the test instruments
The basis for evaluating the effectiveness of interventions in the education and continuing professional development of physical education (PE) teachers involves valid, reliable, and objective instruments, which are largely lacking. Content validity is a necessary basis for the development of such instruments. Accordingly, this study presents the content validation of a test for the assessment of (classroom management-related) professional knowledge and the perception, interpretation, and decision-making (PID) of prospective PE teachers. The result is a content-validated knowledge test (110 test items) as well as a video-based test for the assessment of PID (ten vignettes, 217 items). In a next step, the instruments are empirically validated.
