    This study aimed to exploring PCK-PE factor of physical education teachers, develop a scale and verify its validity. It was divided into preliminary surveys and main survey. First, a scale was developed through the Delphi verification process after data were collected through an open questionnaire given to 97 physical education teachers. Then, a descriptive statistical analysis and an exploratory factor analysis was performed on data collected from 163 physical education teachers in February 2020. And the reliability of the scale was analyzed. Based upon the analysis, the PCK-PE of physical education teachers was found to have 6 factor structures. The scale developed in this study is expected to more accurately and properly evaluate PE teachers’ PCK-PE.
