The purpose of this study was to present an analytical framework for quality assurance model of physical education and sport education in Iranian schools. The research method is qualitative with systematic analysis approach. The statistical population consisted of two sections of human society (professors of sport management, deputies and experts of the Ministry of Education and teachers of physical education) and information society. The statistical sample was adequately sampled based on theoretical saturation and available for sampling and survey (16 persons and 30 documents). Research tools included systematic library study and semi-structured interview. Validity of the instrument was evaluated using descriptive qualitative methods (content validity, kappa coefficient). Conceptual coding and conceptual framing were used to analyze the findings. The analytical framework presented consists of three main parts: input, process and output or output. these three sections include goals, resources, opportunities and needs, and the process section including quality of education management, quality of educational environment, quality of educational program, quality of educational facilities, quality of teacher in teaching process, quality of inclusive participation, quality of teaching. And evaluation is based on quality. the consequences of the system include individual, organizational, and social consequences. Therefore, it can be said that the determinants of the quality of education in physical education and sport in schools are not limited to a specific section such as quality education planning, opportunities, needs or processes, but rather to the whole. The system exists and each department needs a specific strategy to implement the quality assurance model.
