ISU professor seeks Illinois prep athletes for survey

Scott Pierce, a professor in the Department of Kinesiology & Recreation at Illinois State University, is administering a survey as part of a research study on how high school athletics influence personal development.

"As a student-athlete, you will have the opportunity to complete a survey to help us understand how to best create positive experiences for student-athletes like yourself," Pierce explains on the introductory page to the survey found here.

The IHSA Student Advisory Committee is encouraging student-athletes around the state to complete a survey to help further a better understanding of the many benefits of participating in high school athletics.

As a bonus students responding to the survey will have the chance to win one of four $50 Amazon gift cards.

Pierce's work primarily focuses on youth psycho-social development through sport. His research includes "an emphasis on how psychological skills are developed to assist sport performance, and how, why and under what conditions life skills are developed in sport and transferred to other life domains."

If you have questions about your right as a participant, please contact the Research Ethics and Compliance Office at Illinois State University (309-438-5527) or via email at rec@IllinoisState.edu. Parental permission is required in order complete the survey and participate in the study.
