Michael Xavier and Dr. Deepak ShendkarAbstract:
The purpose of this descriptive comparative study was to describe the attitudes of Pre-service and In-service physical education (PE) teachers toward inclusive physical education. Non-probability based convenience sampling technique was used to select 40 Pre-service and 40 In-service physical education teachers who participated in the study. The “Teachers’ Attitudes toward Inclusion Scale” developed by Fathi Rezk El-Ashry (2009) 
was administered to assess their attitudes toward inclusive physical education. The results showed that the mean score of In-service PE teachers is 112.93(± 5.967) and that of Pre-service PE teachers is 109.95(± 5.922). Two-way ANOVA was used to derive the inferential statistics. It was seen that there was no significant interaction between the effects of Groups and Gender on the attitudes of PE teachers toward Inclusive PE (F=0.468; p=0.496). Simple main effect analysis showed there is significant difference between Groups (F=4.292; p=0.042) and there is no significant difference between Gender (F=2.044; p=0.157). Hence it can be concluded that there is a significant difference between the attitudes of Pre-service and In-service physical education teachers toward inclusive physical education.Pages: 385-388 | 392 Views 35 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
