NCAA member institutions must be diligent in the continual improvement of rules-compliance programs. One way is to measure whether institutional personnel, student-athletes, boosters and others are complying with NCAA legislation and following athletics policy and procedures. Specifically, an athletics department can aggregate, analyze and assess institutional personnel, student-athletes, boosters and others’ accurate implementation of athletics policy and procedures relating to NCAA rules-compliance using:
•Data from secondary violation self-reports.
•Data, feedback and other information from compliance hotlines, small-group discussions and workshop feedback.
•Data from scorecards that measure campus and athletics units’ compliance with NCAA legislation.
•Annual compliance surveys of university and athletics staff, student-athletes, boosters and others.
