The purpose of this study was to verify the validity and reliability of Perceived Work Quality of Life Scale by Physical Education (PE) Teachers from Elementary to High- School (QVT-PEF). The scale has 34 questions divided in eigth dimensions. For the content validation, 19 specialists were consulted, and they indicated 70% of agreement with the analytical matrix. For reliability, the procedure of test-retest was applied with an interval of one week in a sample of 58 PE teachers, from municipal, state, and private schools of Florianópolis, SC. The reliability was evaluated by the Spearman’s correlation (rs), and internal consistency of the instrument was analyzed by Cronbach’s alpha, using the statistical program SPSS for Windows, 11.0 version (p<0.05). The results demonstrated that all dimensions had high correlation for reliability (rs between 0.82-0.69). Thirty two questions (94.12%) obtained high correlation coefficients (rs between 0.85-0.60), and two questions (5.88%) indicated moderate correlation. For the internal consistency, it was found a high level of alpha of Cronbach (0.94), where 97.06% of the questions and 75% of the dimensions showed, at least, acceptable levels. Therefore, QVT-PEF presents good levels of reliability, internal consistency, as well as, content validity, justifying its use on studies aiming to determine quality of life at work among PE school teachers.
