Abstract
Many student teachers are led by their interest in sport discipline to study teaching of Physical Education. However, this field at universities is not only about exercising and practising sports but also about sufficient knowledge about all aspects of physical activities, fitness, their determinants, health factors and other indicators. Aim of this study is to compare preparedness of future PE teachers in the field of knowledge about PA and health. We used Comprehensive test to examine undergraduate students’ knowledge. We tested 538 students at four different Czech universities during 2008-2011. Comprehensive test is standardised tool recommended to be used in comparative studies. Results showed that students from Faculty of Sports Studies reached the most positive points in the test (62.45% of positive answers). Students from other three Czech universities reached approximately the same results (58.4-58.6% of positive answers). The question with the biggest statistical difference regarded to the most nutritious sources of energy for human body and the most difficult question was what the most important factors are for health.
