This study is a comparative study of virtual high school instruction vs. traditional face-to-face instruction of high school student performance and attitudes in physical education. This study was designed to compare the performance outcomes and course satisfaction of face-to-face classroom-based instruction and online instruction of a Personal Fitness course. The population of this study included 24 students enrolled in an online physical education class and 36 students in a face-to-face physical education class at two high schools in Atlanta, Georgia. The results of the study indicated that, the online physical education students improved effectively with regard to physical performance overall, especially in upper body strength. Additionally, the sample of face-to-face students indicated that 80.7% fell into a “healthy zone” at the end of the course. Course satisfaction between the two groups was not statistically significant.
