Construction and Validation of the Student-Athlete Environmental and Academic Orientation Survey (SEAOS)
Mullenbach, Lauren E.; Green, Gary T.
International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, v11 n12 p5477-5497 2016
Many surveys exist that measure environmental orientations, yet few measure learning outcomes, such as self-efficacy, and even fewer specifically target student-athletes. Hence, this study created a survey, named the Student-Athlete Environmental and Academic Orientation Survey (SEAOS), which measured student-athletes' environmental attitudes, behaviors, and knowledge, academic self-efficacy, self-regulatory learning, motivation, and learning strategies. The SEAOS was pilot tested with 91 university student-athletes in Spring 2014. After revisions the final SEAOS was administered as a pretest-posttest to student-athletes in a treatment or control group in Fall 2014 and Spring 2015. The treatment group received environmental and academic mentoring, whereas the control group received only academic mentoring. Principal component analysis revealed seven constructs with each construct receiving Cronbach's alpha reliability coefficients above 0.7. Hence, the SEAOS was deemed valid and reliable. However, additional studies should examine the survey's efficacy in regard to environmental knowledge, motivation, and learning strategies for other student populations.
