UNESCO in 2005 was the first institution to establish a universal concept of what is quality physical education. However, establishing parameters to measure such quality, either taking that concept as a reference or the variants that have arisen subsequently is a complex task that has triggered multiple scientific researches. This study invited Physical Education professionals to answer a questionnaire, which was adopted from the study by Ho et al. (2021) in QPE, as a blueprint to investigate professionals' understanding of Physical Education development in Ecuador. A total of 374 (216 male and 158 female) Physical Education teachers and professionals were invited to participate in this study. The data were obtained from nine cities in Ecuador. The dimensions quality teaching in Physical Education had the highest score and the lowest scored dimension Plans for Feasibility and Accessibility of Physical Education. The overall average mean of the questionnaire was 6.05 from maximum ten. The instrument had excellent internal consistency (α = .985). The works in QPE are slightly above average. It carries the message that the recommendation for QPE is not fully achieved.
