A survey of division I athletic administrator's competencv dimensions for administration and mentoring
Division I athletic administrators (N = 166) were randomly selected and assigned to 2 groups, Administrators and Mentors. Subjects submitted their perceptions of the 7 competency dimensions - Planner, Fiscal Officer, Evaluator, Educator, Resource Developer, Leader, and Communicator - for administration and mentoring. The instrument used was the Administrative Competencies in Physical Education and Athletics Survey (Endersbe, 1987). The return rate was 55%. Statistical treatments used on the data were the t-test for independent samples and the Wilcoxon T test. The t-test for independent samples was used to determine if the perceptions of the Administrators group differed from those of the Mentors group at the .05 level. For all 7 dimensions the results of the t-test were p > .05. The Wilcoxon T test, at the .05 level, was used to determine if the groups rated the 7 dimensions on the survey the way they ranked them. Results revealed differences between the ratings and rankings of some of the dimensions but they were nonsignificant statistically.
