Background. The subject of PE is often considered as a field of equal opportunities and cultural coexistence, which facilitate social skills and create a harmonic environment. Sports are a most suitable field for developing social skills, facing the “different” and embodying normally all the participants who come from different cultural environments. Objectives. The aim of this study was to control the validity and credibility of the Greek version Student’s Behaviors’Self-evaluation Scale, in a Greek multicultural educational environment and specifically in relation to secondary school students during their participating in the physical education classes. The psychometrical qualities of the scale were examined in addition to the influence of gender and age, as factors which differentiate the social skills of students. Methods. The participants of the research were 182 male and female students studying in six multicultural secondary Schools in distinct geographical areas. The statistical analyses that were applied were: Confirmatory factor analysis, Reliability analysis, Independent-sample t-test and one-way ANOVA analysis. Results. The results showed that the internal consistency of the sub-scales was high, since α Cronbach fluctuated in high levels (goals 0.84, rewards 0.85, relations 0.88, irresponsibility 0.78 and help 0.79). The confirmatory factor analysis certified the suggested structure of the climax (χ2 (413.33) / d.f. (109) = 3.79; P < 0.05; NFI=0.91, CFI=0.92, RMSEA=0.075 and SRMR=0.042). Conclusion. Therefore, the results confirmed the suitability of the Students’ Behavior Self-evaluation Scale for the Greek school environment during physical education lesson. In addition, there was a confirmation that gender is a differentiation factor, while class (age) is not.
