According to the result of literature review, the 'Physical Education Profession Appraisal Indicator Questionnaire' was made as an investigation instrument. Ccholars and experts who have practical and theoretical experience on a related subject of physical education and educational profession were invited as an object of investigation. The Delphi Technique was used as a means to define each item of indicator and furthermore to construct a relative weight of each indicator item. The results were shown below: 1. The physical education teacher appraisal indicator contains six factors which are curriculum development, teaching performance, administrational communication and extracurricular activities, teaching activities and assistants' ability, teaching assessment and the spirit of profession.
