The purpose of this study was to investigate the variation in teaching behavior of physical educators over an instructional unit. Both inter- and intra-comparisons were made for three experienced teachers. The subjects recorded audiotapes during each of 10 lessons in a volleyball unit. The directly, indirectly, and noncontributing behaviors for each teacher were coded and described by Observation System for Content Development-Physical Education (OSCD-PE). The results indicate that most teaching behaviors were variable over the unit. There was as much variability for each teacher within the unit as between teachers over the unit.
