This study aimed to validate an English version of two questionnaires to analyze perceived psychological need support and need satisfaction in the physical education context. Participants included 453 students aged between 12 and 17 years. For the psychological need-support scale (BPNSQ) the hypothesized 3-factor solution displayed high interfactor correlations (rs > 1), and a follow-up analysis indicated that the items were represented by a single need-support factor. For the psychological need-satisfaction scale (BPN-PE), we found support for the hypothesized 3-factor solution. Both scales were found invariant across gender, and the nomological validity was also demonstrated through the associations between factors of both scales. This study provides initial support for the use of the Basic Psychological Needs Support Questionnaire (BPNSQ) and the Basic Psychological Needs in Physical Education Scale (BPN-PE) to assess perceptions of psychological need support and psychological need satisfaction within the physical education context.
