BASIC Computer Scoring Program for the Leadership Scale for Sports.
Garland, Daniel J.
This paper describes a computer scoring program, written in Commodore BASIC, that offers an efficient approach to the scoring of the Leadership Scale for Sports (LSS). The LSS measures: (1) the preferences of athletes for specific leader behaviors from the coach; (2) the perception of athletes regarding the actual leader behavior of their coach; (3) the coach's perception of their leader behavior; and (4) the "ideal" leader behavior. The instrument consists of five dimensions of leader behavior in sports: (1) one direct task factor--training and instruction; (2) two decision style factors--democratic and autocratic; and (3) two motivational factors--social support and positive feedback. Information is provided on the hardware required, the organization of the LSS scoring program, and the modes of input desired from the user. A sample runoff is included. (JD)
