As a measurement tool for teachers was used the Chen, Burry-Stock και Rovegno’s (2000) questionnaire The Constructivist Teaching Practices Inventory in Elementary Physical Education (CTPI-EPE) with four factors and 36 questions, and for the students was used an adaptation of the same tool. The results showed very weak to negative correlations between constructive teaching and learning in Physical Education.
