Summary
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship of intercollegiate athletic participation and personal and social development of student-athletes at a single higher education institution. The football program studied (FPS) has experienced success both competitively and scholastically. A quantitative case study research design was used to study traditional upperclass students. This study sought to investigate the influence of participation in the FPS on personal and social development outcomes, as measured by the Student Developmental Task and Lifestyle Assessment (SDTLA). The independent variable was participation status in the FPS. The independent variable was compared with personal and social development outcomes, the dependent variables. Upperclass students' SDTLA scores were acquired form the Office of Assessment, Information and Analysis at the participating university. Developmental task, subtask and lifestyle scale scores on the SDTLA (dependent variable data) were recorded as T-scores. Univariate analysis of variance and Multiple Analysis of Variance were computed to check for significant SDTLA differences between FPS participants and non-FPS participants. Lastly, discriminant analysis was used to determine if a person's personal and social development outcomes could predict membership in one of the groups, either a FPS participant or non-FPS participant. According to the descriptive analysis of the SDTLA personal and social development outcomes measured in this study, FPS participants scored higher on average than non-participants on every dependent variable. Non-FPS participants scored within the normal developmental range as compared to seniors in the normative population sample on 13 of the 14 personal and social development outcomes. Further, non-FPS participants scored slightly below the normal developmental range on the Emotional Autonomy subtask. FPS participants scored within the normal developmental range on nine (9) of the 14 dependent variables. On the other five (5) dependent variables, FPS participants scored above the normal developmental range as compared to seniors in the normative population sample. The MANOVA revealed no significant differences among FPS participants and non-FPS participants on personal and social development outcomes. Therefore, taking all 14 personal and social development outcomes into account, there is no overall significant difference among FPS participants and non-FPS participants. However, univariate analysis of variance revealed several significant outcomes. FPS participants were significantly more developed than non-FPS participants on five dependent variables. Finally, a discriminant analysis was conducted to determine the ability of the fourteen dependent variables (personal and social development outcomes of the SDTLA) to predict FPS participation status (participant or non-participant). The analysis generated one function that was not significant
