Abstract

The aim of this study was to establish the correlation between the interest in PE-related activities and the scholastic achievements at the end of the school year as well as the final grade in PE in the previous year of school attendance. The experiment was conducted on a sample of 300 secondary school female students from Zagreb as an anonymous survey, which contained questions, related to the general achievements in school, the grade in PE and the interest in PE activities. The answers were subjected to factor analysis, variance analysis and discriminative analysis. Factor analysis showed that PE activities were identified in a latent space as five mutually independent factors. Variance analysis and discriminative analysis found no significant relation between the interest in sports activities and the general school achievements. The analysis of the correlation between the interest in sports activities and the PE grade showed a significant discriminative function which was best identified by the answers: apparatus exercises, jumping and floor exercises, whereas other activities were not so well-defined. The answers of students who had a lower grade contributed to the greatest extent to the differences in interest.
