Aydın Karaçam, Atilla Pulur

Abstract


The aim of this study is to investigate the predictive values of academic optimism, psychological well-being and physical self-esteem in the success perceptions of physical education teachers. This study is a descriptive study which uses a relational survey model. The sample of the study is comprised of 374 physical education teachers selected from the central counties of Ankara. Stratified sampling technique was used in the determination of the samples. The analysis of the data was done by use of SPSS 21 and AMOS programs. The Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient for the determination of the relations between the variables, whether the academic optimism, psychological well-being and physical esteem of physical education teachers are rational predictors of success conceptions as well as the direct and indirect effects of the variables were all investigated with path analysis. The results of the study indicated that there is a positive significant relationship between the success perceptions and academic optimism, psychological well-being and physical self-esteem levels of physical education teachers. Besides, while academic optimism and physical self-esteem positively and directly predict the success perceptions of physical education teachers, psychological well-being predicts the success perceptions indirectly by means of academic optimism.
