1 ROGERS STATE UNIVERSITY Survey of Student Interests in Athletics, Fitness, and Sports Office of Accountability and Academics 1/23/2015 This report describes the results of a survey of Rogers State University students conducted at the end of the fall 2014 semester. The purpose of the survey was to assess students interests in athletics, fitness, and sports activities, was based on guidelines set by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and was modified for online implementation.

2 1 INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW This report presents the results of the Survey of Student Interests in Athletics, Fitness, and Sports implemented during the academic year to Rogers State University students. The purpose of this survey was to assess students interests in athletics, fitness, and sports activities. The Survey of Student Interests in Athletics, Fitness, and Sports was based on guidelines set by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and has been modified for online implementation. The survey instrument appears in Appendix A. The survey included 15 items designed to determine student interests about programs sponsored by RSU as well as sponsored by other groups, informal programs, and past activities and interests in athletics, fitness, and sports. Items were divided into five sections as follows: 1. Interest in athletics, fitness and sports activities 2. Participation in high school athletics, fitness and sports activities 3. Participation in college athletics, fitness and sports activities at RSU 4. Interest in participating in athletics activities at RSU 5. Background information and demographics Interest level and participation data were collected using a Likert-type scale, and eight demographic questions were posed to determine generalizability of the sample to the RSU population. The goal of this survey was to determine relative participation rates and level of interest of students in sports and fitness activities and teams, and results were disaggregated by gender. Results will be used to better understand student needs for both male and female students, and to better evaluate RSU compliance with Title IX. METHODOLOGY Students enrolled in at least one course at RSU during fall 2014 were ed a link to the online survey at the end of the fall 2014 semester (December 16, 2014). A total of 4,031 students received the , and two reminder s were sent. The survey was held open for one full month, closing after the first week of the spring 2015 semester (January 18, 2015). Eighty-five percent of fall 2014 students completed the semester (N = 3,426). A sample size of 251 was targeted with a 5% margin of error, a 90% confidence level for education research, and a 50% response distribution. A total of 272 students completed the survey. Survey participation was voluntary, and all students enrolled in fall 2014 had equal opportunity to participate. To encourage participation, a $50 gift certificate was awarded to one respondent through a random drawing at the close of the survey period. Students were given the option to provide their name and university ID to be included in the drawing, and the Office for Office for Accountability and Academics Page 1

3 2 Accountability and Academics was responsible for the random selection of the gift certificate winner as well as for the analysis of survey data. Because survey participation was voluntary, it was necessary to assess for potential response bias. Demographic data from the sample were compared with demographic data from the overall RSU population. A chi square statistical test was used to test for difference in response rate by gender between the sample and University population ( =.05), a key demographic for this analysis, and no significant difference resulted. Table 1 presents a comparison of population and sample by gender. Table 1: Comparison of Population and Sample by Key Demographics: Gender Gender RSU Population Survey Sample N = 4,031 N = 272 Male 37.4% 28.3% Female 62.6% 71.7% A relatively even distribution resulted between survey respondents in terms of freshman and sophomores and between juniors and seniors. Distribution varies within the population; however, a chi square test revealed no statistically significant difference between population and sample in terms of academic classification ( =.05). Three graduate students responded to the survey. Although graduate students are not eligible for intercollegiate club sports, their interest in fitness, athletics, and intramural sports is of importance, and their responses are included in the results. Table 2 presents a comparison of population and sample by academic classification. Table 2: Comparison of Population and Sample by Key Demographics: Academic Classification Academic Classification RSU Population N = 4,031 Survey Sample N = 272 Freshman 35.7% 22.0% Sophomore 20.1% 22.5% Junior 19.3% 27.1% Senior 24.6% 27.1% Graduate Student 0.3% 1.3% Because it is essential that RSU investigate possible response bias in race and/or ethnicity of survey respondents and in full-time and part-time student status, these demographics variables were also compared. A chi square test determined no statistically significant difference between RSU s population and survey sample in terms of race ( =.05). Because RSU has a substantial Native American population as well as Native American plus one other race, these two Office for Accountability and Academics Page 2

4 3 categories were aggregated. Only one student selected Other for a race, and this race was noted as Caribbean. Table 3 presents this comparison. Table 3: Comparison of Population and Sample by Key Demographics: Race and Ethnicity Race and/or Ethnicity* RSU Population N = 4,031 Asian or Pacific Islander 1.3% 2.9% Black 2.4% 4.0% Hispanic 4.8% 2.2% Native American (includes 2 or more races if one race is Native American) Survey Sample N = % 22.1% White 60.1% 67.6% Unknown 0.3% 1.1% Other % *U.S. Department of Education categories used Statistically significant results were found in comparing full-time versus part-time status of the sample compared to the RSU population ( =.05). Full-time students were significantly more likely to respond to the survey than were part-time students. Previous research has informed RSU that part-time students at the University are more likely to hold full-time jobs and work more hours than full-time students. Additionally, part-time students were significantly more likely to report having children or other dependents. Because of this difference, chi square tests were conducted by full-time/part-time status for items regarding interest in watching athletics, interest in participating in athletics, and student belief regarding RSU s emphasis on athletics. Results indicated a significant difference ( =.05) only for interest in participating in athletic, fitness, or sports activities as a result of full-time or part-time status, with part-time students reporting significantly less interest in participating in these activities. These results suggest that future focus regarding participation of athletic, fitness, and sports activities at RSU can be more effectively targeted towards full-time students. Table 4 presents the percentages by population and sample for this demographic variable. Table 4: Comparison of Population and Sample by Key Demographics: Full-time and Parttime Status Gender RSU Population Survey Sample N = 4,031 N = 272 Full-time 65.1% 84.3% Part-time 34.9% 15.7% Office for Accountability and Academics Page 3

5 4 Respondents were also asked to provide their major. Because of the low number of students enrolled in some majors and because of the higher number of possible majors, a test of significance was not conducted on this variable. However, percentages for RSU s fall 2014 population and the sample are presented in Table 5 for critical comparison. In general, survey respondents reflected their major in the university population with few exceptions. AAS Nursing majors were less likely to respond to the survey. Most AAS Nursing students work fulltime jobs and have dependents. BS in Social Science majors were more likely to respond to the survey. This major has a larger proportion of first-time freshmen than do a number of other majors.

Figure 4 presents students participation rates in varsity sports in high school. Six out of ten (60%) male respondents participated in varsity high school sports, and nearly half (47.3%) of female respondents did so. Office for Accountability and Academics Page 6

8 7 Students non-varsity high school sports participation rates were similar by gender, with nearly one-quarter of respondents reporting non-varsity participation as presented in Figure 5. Males were more likely to participate in non-school sponsored sports and fitness activities in high school than were females, as shown in Figure 6.

9 8 Most survey respondents were not members of an RSU intercollegiate sports team or club, with 16.4% of female and 20% of male respondents reporting intercollegiate participation in the last year (see Figure 7). Most common sports for female club members were soccer, basketball and cheerleading (see Figure 8). Most common sports for male club members were soccer, golf, and basketball (see Figure 9). The majority of respondents were not members of club sports, and this indicates that survey results are indicative of the opinions of most full-time RSU students.

Results were disaggregated by gender, and female respondents results appear in Figures Results for male respondents are presented in Figures RSU Female Student Results Nearly half (47.3%) of females reported that they participated in varsity sports in high school, nearly one-quarter (23.6%) participated in non-varsity sports, and approximately one-third participated in non-school sponsored sports or fitness activities. Most common varsity sports included basketball, softball, track and field, cheerleading, soccer, cross country and volleyball, in respective order (see Figure 10). Non-varsity sports were similar but with lower frequency (see Figure 11). Most frequent non-school sponsored activities consisted of hiking, jogging, and yoga as presented in Figure 12.

Figure 13 presents these results disaggregated by students self-reported ability levels. For females, dancing was the most popular program, with 32.7% reporting interest. Nearly one-third of interested females reported that they have the ability to dance competitively and the remainder reported that they would need to develop the ability. Interest was also shown for hockey (27.3%), swimming (23.0%), volleyball (20.0%), and tennis (16.9%), among other sports. A majority of interested females reported that they currently have the ability to play hockey and volleyball. Interest and self-reported levels of ability indicate that additional club talent exists in RSU s existing student body. Office for Accountability and Academics Page 12

17 16 To inform planning of new intramural sports and fitness activities, respondents were asked to rate their ability levels for specific sports and activities for which they reported interest. Response options included: not interested, interested and have the ability, and interested but would need to develop ability. Similar to responses for intercollegiate sports, females reported dancing as the most popular program, with 24.9% reporting interest. Most interested females reported that they would need to develop the ability. Interest was also shown for hiking (23.2%), volleyball (15.8%), softball (15.7%), swimming (15.2%), and jogging (15.1%), among others. A majority of interested females reported that they currently have the ability to play softball and to participate in a hiking program.

18 17 Male Student Results A majority (60.0%) of male respondents reported that they participated in varsity sports in high school, nearly one-quarter (2) participated in non-varsity sports, and more than half (53.8%) participated in non-school sponsored sports or fitness activities. Most common varsity sports included basketball, football, baseball, track and field, softball, soccer, cross country and wrestling, in respective order (see Figure 17). Non-varsity sports were reported with lower frequency (see Figure 18), with basketball, football, rugby, baseball, and volleyball mentioned, in respective order. Most frequent non-school sponsored activities consisted of basketball (2), jogging (15.4%), weightlifting (15.4%), and soccer (12.3%) among other activities, as presented in Figure 19.

21 20 To determine interest in future participation in intercollegiate club sports, respondents were asked to rate interest for a list of currently existing programs and programs that could be formed. Figure 12 presents these results disaggregated by students self-reported ability levels. For males, football was the most popular program, with 40% reporting interest. A total of 29.2% of interested males reported that they have the ability to play football competitively and the remainder reported that they would need to develop the ability. Interest was also shown for basketball (33.8%), weight lifting (27.7%), hockey (23.1%), volleyball (23%), baseball (23%), and tennis (20%), among other athletic programs. A majority of interested males reported that they currently have the ability to substantively participate in football, basketball, weight lifting, hockey, volleyball, baseball, and several others programs.

22 21 Students were asked to identify obstacles they experience or have experienced in participating in RSU intercollegiate athletic programs over the last year. The two most common obstacles were that it interferes with their studies (36.9%) and it interferes with their job (36.9%). Other obstacles included: programs are not currently offered that they are interested in (23.1%), takes too much time (2); interferes with family (20%), not good enough to make the team (13.8%), and not interested (13.8%). All identified obstacles for male students appear in Figure 21.

23 22 Because intramural programs present additional options for RSU students, survey respondents were asked to rate their interest in a number of intramural and fitness programs at RSU. Greatest interested for male respondents was for a football program, with 30.8% expressing interest. Other programs of more interest include: basketball (2); baseball (20%); hiking (16.9%); volleyball (15.4%); weight lifting (15.4%); and tennis (12.3%), among other sports and activities. Ratings are presented in Figure 22.

24 23 To inform planning of new intramural sports and fitness activities, male respondents were asked to rate their ability levels for specific sports and activities for which they reported interest. Response options included: not interested, interested and have the ability, and interested but would need to develop ability. Males self-reported their highest ability levels for basketball at 30.8%, and an additional 9.2% of interested respondents noted that they would need to develop the ability.

25 24 CONCLUSIONS The mission of the Rogers State University Athletics Department is to achieve excellence within intercollegiate athletic competition while modeling the NCAA s core values of integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship, and servant leadership. The department endeavors to promote an environment of excellence and accountability for student athletes as well as all RSU students through athletic, sports, and fitness opportunities. The purpose of this study was to assess student interest in athletics, fitness, and sports activities at the University. Information was requested regarding student participation, interest, and ability levels in a variety of existing and possible sports and programs. Further, obstacles to student participation were identified to inform future program planning. All students enrolled at RSU during the fall 2014 semester were ed an invitation to participate in the online survey at the end of the fall semester. Participation was voluntary, and a $50 gift certificate was used as an incentive to participate. Students were assured their responses would be kept confidential; only overall results of the survey are of interest for RSU planning and Title IX compliance. A sample of 251 students was needed for a 5% margin of error and 90% confidence level. A total of 272 students responded, and respondents were representative of the RSU student population in terms of gender, race and ethnicity, academic classification, and major. Full-time students were significantly more likely to respond than were part-time students. However, there was no significant difference in interest in watching athletics or belief regarding RSU s emphasis on athletics as a result of full-time or part-time student status. There was a significant difference in interest in participating in athletics as a result of full-time or part-time student status, with part-time students significantly less interested in participating. These results suggest the survey findings can be implemented more effectively with full-time students than with part-time students at RSU. Major findings of the study are summarized below. Results indicate a majority of RSU students are interested in athletics, fitness, and sports. A total of 57% reported being interested in watching or listening to athletic events, with 21% rating their interest level as extremely interested. A total of 62% reported interest in participating in athletic, fitness, or sports activities, with 23% rating their interest level as extremely interested. Approximately half of students rated RSU s emphasis on intercollegiate athletics as the right amount, with 15% rating it as too little and 12% rating it as too much. A majority (52%) of male and female students were involved in some type of athletics programs during their high school experiences. Most common high school sports activities included basketball, baseball or softball, track and field, cheerleading, and cross country running. With regard to intercollegiate participation at RSU, the vast majority of respondents had not participated in competitive club sports within the last year; however, a significant percent of students indicated interest in one or more athletic sports or programs (66.9%). Males were most interested in football, basketball, and weight lifting. Females were most interested in competitive dancing, hockey, swimming, and volleyball. Females were less likely to report having Office for Accountability and Academics Page 24

26 25 competitive ability but reported an interest in developing their abilities. Males were more likely to report currently having competitive ability. Obstacles to participating in club sports were similar for both males and females. Most common obstacles included interference with academic studies, interference with job/employment, interference with family responsibilities, and amount of time required to participate. Intramural sports and programs are a more realistic option for most RSU students. Half of all females (50.3%) reported interest in a yoga program at RSU. Dancing (29.1%), aerobics (26%), hiking 2), swimming (14.5%), and jogging (13.9%) were also rated as popular. Nearly onethird (30.8%) of males reported interest in intramural football at RSU. Basketball (2), baseball (20%), hiking 16.9%, volleyball (15.4%), weight lifting (15.4%), and tennis 12.3%) were rated highest. Hiking, tennis, and volleyball were more popular activities for both genders and hold potential for coeducational implementation. Office for Accountability and Academics Page 25
