College students’ attitudes towards three-self-determination PE class are preceded the theoretical construction and the scale of college students’ attitudes towards three-self-determination PE class is compiled by comprehensively applying literatures, discussions, and questionnaire. With Partial Least Squares (PLS) to select information and explore theories, it reveals that college students’ attitudes towards three-self-determination PE class are composed of 7 dimensions of attitudes towards course cognition, attitudes towards social behavior, attitudes towards health and safety, attitudes towards leisure life, attitudes towards sports knowledge, attitudes towards sports technique, and attitudes towards physical development; and, the fit of attitude model is favorable. With Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) Confirmatory Factor Analysis, the structure of the scale of college students’ attitudes towards three-self-determination PE class is supported, and the scale presents good reliability, validity, and stability. What is more, the national overall, gender, and grade norms are also constructed.
