The correlation between the subscales was analyzed with Spearman correlation analysis. The findings were assessed with 95 % confidence interval and 5 % significance level.As a result of the study, it was concluded that performance evaluation of the physical education teachers should be conducted through a multiple-inspection committee (principals, province education inspector, teachers, branch teachers and students’ parents) once a year in consideration of such criteria as objectivity, reliability, participation and openness.
