The objective of this study was to develop and validate the Psychobiosocial Experience Semantic Differential in Physical Education (PESD-PE) scale, a new holistic measure of discrete emotion-related feelings (i.e., psychobiosocial experiences) as conceived within the individual zones of optimal functioning (IZOF) framework. A preliminary version of the PESD-PE was administered to 336 students (171 girls, 165 boys), while the final version was administered to a new sample of 352 students (186 girls, 166 boys) aged 14–19 years. Overall, findings provided evidence of factorial and construct validity for a model containing 33 items loading into 11 modalities, with 3 items each. Convergent, discriminant, and nomological validity of the PESD-PE was also found. This new measure of discrete experiences will help increase our knowledge about the reciprocal effects between emotion-related feelings and performance, and will also inform practical interventions aimed at creating more adaptive psychobiosocial experiences in accordance with physical education goals.

Abstract

The objective of this study was to develop and validate the Psychobiosocial Experience Semantic Differential in Physical Education (PESD-PE) scale, a new holistic measure of discrete emotion-related feelings (i.e., psychobiosocial experiences) as conceived within the individual zones of optimal functioning (IZOF) framework. A preliminary version of the PESD-PE was administered to 336 students (171 girls, 165 boys), while the final version was administered to a new sample of 352 students (186 girls, 166 boys) aged 14–19 years. Overall, findings provided evidence of factorial and construct validity for a model containing 33 items loading into 11 modalities, with 3 items each. Convergent, discriminant, and nomological validity of the PESD-PE was also found. This new measure of discrete experiences will help increase our knowledge about the reciprocal effects between emotion-related feelings and performance, and will also inform practical interventions aimed at creating more adaptive psychobiosocial experiences in accordance with physical education goals.
