TOOL FOR ASSESSING RESPONSIBILITY-BASED EDUCATION (TARE) IN THE PORTUGUESE CONTEXT: IN-STRUMENT ADAPTATION AND RELIABILITY ASSESSMENT

Abstract

Fernando Santos

Throughout the last decades, the teaching personal and social responsibility model has proven useful in a range of contexts. Several observational instruments such as the tool for assessing responsibilitybased education have been developed to assess responsibility-based interventions. However, researchers have recognized the tool for assessing responsibility-based education has limitations. The objectives of this study were to present a modified version of this observational tool applied to the coaching context, analyze the interratter reliability of the new instrument and measure youth athletes' and coaches' responsibility behaviours. The participants were four youth coaches as data from one-minute intervals was collected. There were high rates of reliability in some categories included in the observational tool as others were not present in coaches' behaviours. Additionally, positive correlations between coaches' and athletes' responsibility behaviours were identified. These findings may inform practitioners and researchers about how the teaching personal and social responsibility model is being implemented in such contexts.
