Objective: This study tested effects of changes in the psychological constructs of the trans-contextual model (TCM) on changes in adolescents' outside of school moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (PA) measured using self-report and accelerometer-based device. Design: A three-wave longitudinal design was used. High school students (N = 331) completed measures of all the TCM constructs at Time1 and at Time2, five weeks apart. Self-reported PA behaviour was measured also at Time3, five weeks after Time2. PA was measured using accelerometer-based devices for seven days following Time1 and Time3 for a census week. Results: A structural equation model using residual change scores revealed that perceived autonomy support from physical education (PE) teachers positively predicted autonomous motivation in PE. Autonomous motivation in PE positively predicted autonomous motivation in leisure time. Leisure-time autonomous motivation was positively and indirectly related to intention, mediated by attitude and perceived behavioural control. Intention positively predicted self-reported PA, and mediated the effect of autonomous motivation on self-reported PA. There were no effects on outside of school PA measured by accelerometer-based device. Conclusions: Results provide qualified support for the TCM in the prediction of change in adolescents' leisure-time autonomous motivation, intention, and self-reported PA, but not change in PA measured by accelerometer-based device. ...

Predicting change in middle school students’ leisure-time physical activity participation : A prospective test of the trans-contextual model Polet, Juho; Lintunen, Taru; Schneider, Jekaterina; Hagger, Martin S. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2020)We applied the trans-contextual model (TCM) to examine the effects of middle school students’ perceived autonomy support from their physical education (PE) teachers on autonomous motivation toward PE in school and, critically, ...
Testing and extending predictions of the trans-contextual model for leisure-time physical activity in middle school students Polet, Juho (2022)Social-cognition approaches (e.g., the theory of planned behavior) and motivational theories (e.g., self-determination theory) have been utilized to identify the determinants of health behavior. Research applying these ...
Trans-Contextual Model Predicting Change in Out-of-School Physical Activity : A One-Year Longitudinal Study Kalajas-Tilga, Hanna; Hein, Vello; Koka, Andre; Tilga, Henri; Raudsepp, Lennart; Hagger, Martin S. (SAGE Publications, 2022)The aim of the current study was to test the long-term predictive validity of the trans-contextual model in accounting for variance in adolescents’ out-of-school physical activity measured by self-report and accelerometer ...
Predicting leisure time physical activity in Finnish school students : a longitudinal study of the trans-contextual model Hansen, Maiken Rømer (2018)Considering the consequences of inactivity among children, a central question is how to motivate them to become more physically active. The trans-contextual model (TCM) explains how autonomy support in one context lead to ...
