Physical Education Workload Policies, Practices and Procedures on the Junior/Community College Level--A National Inquiry.
Stier, William F., Jr.
Results of a national survey of two-year colleges on the subject of workload policies, practices, and procedures within departments of physical education are presented. Responses from a 26 item questionnaire were received from 165 department chairpersons, which constituted a response rate of 55 percent. Included among the topics covered by the questionnaire were questions on: (1) the existence of a workload policy (written or printed) at the institution; (2) amount of faculty input in creating workload policies; (3) faculty status and tenure opportunities for physical education teachers and coaches; (4) teaching workload of coaches; (5) extra compensation for increased workload; (6) hiring practices for staff members who have dual roles as coaches and physical educators; (7) major responsibilities of the physical education chairperson; and (8) evaluation techniques used within the physical education department. It is pointed out that there is a need for written workload policies that are established through the collegial approach with full faculty input and are implemented in a consistent fashion both within individual departments and within the institution as a whole. The survey questionnaire is appended. (JD)
