The self-assessment of personal competences of physical education teachers
Univeristy of Niš, Faculty of Sport and Physical Education + Univeristy of Niš, Teacher Training Faculty, Vranje



The aim of this paper is to investigate the assessment of the level of competence of physical education teachers when performing complex professional functions within their area of expertise. The determining of basic categories in this analysis is a result of modern pedagogical standpoints, recommendations and norms passed by government institutions in the area of education. Based on these starting points, an instrument has been constructed for the purpose of this research, which enabled the defining of the mentioned areas for over 23 items. For each area, the respondents conducted their own assessments of their competence based on a five degree scale and the method of training in that area. The results have shown that the teachers, when observed as a whole, attribute a high value to their own competence or qualifications. Teachers have recognized the highest level of personal competence in those areas of activities that are closely related to the teaching process itself. Studying at the faculty and experience in teaching have been recognized as being most indicative in those areas that teachers see themselves as most competent in. In addition, the results have also shown that there are no significant differences in the self-assessment of teachers according to gender, the level at which they are teaching in or the years of work experience they have.
