    Abstract

    © The Author(s) 2013. The purpose of this study was to examine the extent to which transformational teaching, exhibited by secondary school physical education teachers, predicts within-class physical activity and leisure-time physical activity among adolescents. The study used a prospective observational design and involved data collected from 874 Grade 10 adolescents (Mage = 15.41, (SD) = .61). Through use of structural equation modeling, the results revealed that adolescents' perceptions of transformational teaching were positively related to within-class physical activity and leisure-time physical activity, and these effects were mediated by adolescents' estimation of their teacher's confidence in their abilities (i.e. relation-inferred self-efficacy) and self-efficacy beliefs.
