The current SIMCE-EF (Physical Education Quality Measurement System) measures elements of physical fitness that have little to do with the discipline’ learning goals. The aim of this study is to determine how SIMCE-PE’s influence is perceived by teachers on their own teaching practices and the school environment. Seventeen PE teachers were interviewed – a hundred percent of the public system personnel in Viña del Mar, where the exams were applied in 2010, 2011, and 2012. According to the teachers, the exam has no impact on the school and such results can remain in the future since SIMCE-PE only measures physical fitness and in a pilot format.
