STATEMENT OF PURPOSEThe purpose of our study is to learn more about motivational differences between scholarship and non-scholarship collegiate athletes. The expected results of our study is that non-scholarship collegiate athletes will have higher intrinsic motivation and lower extrinsic motivation in comparison with collegiate scholarship athletes.
STATEMENT OF RESEARCH METHODOLOGYThe subjects will consist of 40 collegiate athletes who will be given a 15 question survey followed by The Sport Motivation Scale (Pelletier, Fortier, Vallerand, Briere, Tuson, and Blais). Each subject will be given the surveys directly from one of the members on our research team. Each survey will take less than 15 minutes to complete. The surveys will be in the Likert scale format, showing the degree of agreement or disagreement to each question. The responses will then be taken and examined to study the differences between the participants.
ANTICIPATED RISKS AND BENEFITSThis study will not present any dangers or discomforts the participant would not experience in everyday life. A 15 question survey followed by The Sport Motivation Scale, which includes 28 questions, will be administered to the participant in which they will simply be asked to respond.
SUBJECT SELECTIONThe subjects will consist of 40 collegiate athletes, 20 scholarship and 20 non-scholarship, obtained from Missouri Western State University athletic teams. From the 20 of each category, they will be divided into males and females, 10 of each. The subjects will be randomly taken from multiple teams on campus. Therefore, approximately two or three from each team will be used to obtain a wide variety and more valid sample.
CONFIDENTIALITYThe data of our research will be kept confidential by not having ANY kind of identification on the surveys except for the information of whether the test subject is male or female, and whether they are a scholarship or non-scholarship athlete. Names will not be used for the research study for the confidentiality of the subjects.
