Straight-A students dislike physical education in adolescence: Myth or truth? The AVENA, AFINOS and UP&DOWN studies
Resumen: Objective: to examine if those adolescents who dislike physical education classes get better results on academic and cognitive performance than their peers.
Methods: participants included 4 226 adolescents from the AVENA, AFINOS and UP&DOWN; studies. Physical education enjoyment was assessed with a 7-point Likert scale. Cognitive performance in the AVENA study was assessed using the Spanish version of the SRA Test of Educational Ability. Academic performance in the AFI- NOS and UP&DOWN; studies was assessed through Ma- thematics and Language grades and the average of both subjects.
Results: in the AVENA study we found differences in verbal ability among girls who dislike physical education and their peers (P=0.033). In the AFINOS study, boys who dislike physical education had higher scores in Lan- guage than their peers (P=0.024). In the UP&DOWN; study girls who disliked physical education had higher scores in Language and in the average of Language and Mathematics than their peers (P < 0.001).
Conclusion: in the AVENA and AFINOS studies ado- lescents who disliked physical education had similar re- sults in cognitive and academic performance than their peers, but in the UP&DOWN; study girls who disliked physical education showed higher results in academic performance than their peers.
