Analysis of the Spanish version of the Sport Satisfaction Instrument (SSI) adapted to Physical Education

The objective of this study was to analyze the psychometric properties of Sport Satisfaction Instrument (SSI) adapted physical education (PE) using exploratory factor analysis of the dimensional structure of the instrument in a Spanish sample. It was intended to determine, on a preliminary basis, whether it constitutes a valid and reliable for use in future research. Was administered to a total of 224 high school students 12 to 19 years. This analysis supports the hypothesized theoretical model of two factors (satisfaction / fun and boredom). The Spanish version of the instrument for PE showed acceptable levels of internal consistency.
