Journal of College Student Personnel, v24 n3 p236-39 May 1983
Explored the relationship between participation in varsity athletics and the achievement of developmental tasks. Athletes (N=48) and nonathletes (N=43) took the Student Developmental Task Inventory, in which differences were found (i.e., educational plans, career plans, and mature relationships with peers). Athletes scored significantly lower than nonathletes. (Author/JAC)
