Going beyond Won-Loss Record to Identify Competent Coaches: Development of the Coaching Success Questionnaire-2
Gillham, Andrew D.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Idaho
Coaching success is often defined in terms of won-loss records. However, the effort to operationalize more comprehensive strategies for examining coaching success, particularly the development of self-report measures, dates back three decades (e.g., Smith, Smoll, & Curtis, 1979). This project for developing the Coaching Success Questionnaire-2 (CSQ-2) was conceptually driven by Self-Determination (Deci & Ryan, 1985; Ryan & Deci, 2000) and Achievement Goal Theory (Duda & Treasure, 2006), as well as Burton and Radeke's (1991) preliminary work on the Coaching Success Questionnaire. Initially, five dimensions (i.e., winning, enjoyment, and physical, psychological and social development) were hypothesized, with one or more subscales defining each dimension (i.e., 18 subscales total). This instrument development project involved two studies with college athletes. An item pool of 106 items was initially developed, and based on data from 249 Study 1 participants, 76 items were retained based on (a) exploratory factor analysis, (b) alpha reliability, (c) item-to-subscale correlations, and (d) the coaching success conceptual model. For Study 2, the item pool was reduced to 76 items, assessing 5 dimensions and 12 subscales. Confirmatory factor analysis was added to the analyses used in Study 1 and fit indices for the measurement model were good for coaching success predicted by six dimensions (i.e., winning split into winning and attitudes about winning), which were predicted by 10 subscales, with 4 items predicting each subscale.
