Coleman, Jewell J.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene College
Research indicates that participation in interscholastic sports may not affect student academic achievement and self-esteem. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of participation versus non-participation in interscholastic sports on the academic achievement and self-esteem of eighth grade students. Reading and math achievement were measured by comparing Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program scores (TCAP). The Tennessee Self-concept Scale was used to measure self-esteem. Student attitudes were measure using open ended questions. When students were compared by participation versus non-participation while accounting for gender and socioeconomic status no statistical significance was found. Patterns and themes surfaced from responses to the attitudinal open-ended questions. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
