Voluntary Survey of HS Officials

Dr. Meghan Halbrook, an Assistant Professor at Randolph College in the Sport and Exercise Studies Program, and Stefanee Maurice, a lecturer at California Polytechnic State University are collaborating on an IRB approved research study examining the characteristics and experiences of high school sport officials in the United States.  They are hoping to reach as many officials as possible through the online survey link. 

Please take a moment and complete the survey.

The survey closes on August 19.


Note: They formed their questions from information obtained from NFHS, but clearly some things are not standard. across all sports.

In terms of school size, 5A was intended to be the largest size. You do not have to answer or you can simply select the closest to where you officiate.

As far as ratings go, in most states officials are given game or season ratings.
