Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay was to study what students at the upper secondary levels thought that they learned in physical education and if there were differences between girls and boys learning. The purpose was also to study different factors that could affect the learning and to show how curriculum and prior research relate to the students learning. In this essay we used the three aspects of health that are mentioned in the description of physical education: the physical, the social and the psychic. The study was based on a quantitative research where 165 students answered questionnaires about their learning. Our research showed that the students did not get the knowledge that the A-course in physical education should provide and that the goals for the course were not accomplished. From a gender perspective the boys learned more in comparison to the girls in several areas. The study also showed that the students that were physically active and who thought that physical education was fun were the ones who learned the most from the education. The students learning were also affected by different learning styles and by the teachers and their ways to plan their lessons.
