Physical Education and Athletics for the 1980's.
Stier, William F., Jr.
The results of a survey of 144 physical education and athletic programs in colleges and universities enrolling fewer than 2,501 students are presented in this report. The survey's objectives were to examine the scope of physical education and athletic programs and to ascertain current policies, practices, and procedures used in the administration, organization, and conduct of such programs and the use of available facilities. Discussed in narrative form, the data include: (1) enrollment, student population, and affiliation; (2) courses of study and degrees offered; (3) number and qualifications of faculty; (4) faculty evaluation techniques; (5) coaching duties and role; (6) organizational and administrative structure; (7) curricular concerns; (8) scheduling and attendance policies; (9) intra- and extramural activities; and (10) athletic facilities. Supportive data is provided through tables and charts. Needs for further investigation and research are noted in the areas of tenure; competency guidelines; hiring priorities; Title IX, Section 504; and evaluation of teachers, administrators, and coaches.
