This study was conducted to assess the level of concern that exists in physical education student teachers with regard to self, task, and impact—three areas of concern identified by Frances Fuller and her colleagues during the 1960s and 1970s. The study follows the changes in the level of concern during the student teaching semester. Information gathered was subjected to factor analysis where it was found that Fuller’s three constructs did not exist among the physical education student teachers sampled. Rather, a more elaborate pattern of concern development was uncovered than that reported in previous work. The authors make recommendations for the supervisors of student teachers as a result of these findings.
