dc.description.abstract The primary purpose of the study was to examine and analyze high school athletic participation with regard to the achievement of developmental tasks as described by A. W. Chickering and measured through the administration of the Student Developmental Task Inventory, Revised, Second Edition. The investigation was designed to determine whether there was a statistically significant relationship among the developmental factors of athletes, both male and female, and non-athletes, both male and female.In order to complete the study, demographic data was collected from the participating students at the same time as the measurement through the SDTI-2. All information was prepared for computer analysis and all data were computer analyzed. Eight null hypotheses were tested by using the commercial package, Statistical Package for Social Studies (SPSS X)> The 0.05 level of significance was established as the critical probability level for rejection of hypotheses.Conclusions Athletes vs. Non-AthletesWith regard to Developing Autonomy, Developing Purpose, and Developing Mature Interpersonal Relations there is no statistically significant difference in either the male or the female groups.The self reported grade averages were found to be significant for both the male athlete and the female athlete when compared to the non-athletes. Males vs. FemalesWith regard to Developing Autonomy, Developing Purpose, and Developing Mature Interpersonal Relations there is no significant difference in the areas of Developing Autonomy and Developing Purpose. There is a significance at the .04 level for females in the Developing Mature Interpersonal Relations.When considering the athletes only with regard to the developmental tasks, there is no statistically significant difference in the male athletes and the female athletes.The number of sports of participation for the male athletes and the female athletes was also not found to be a significant difference with regard to the three developmental tasks. en_US
