Nonprofit decision making and social regulation: the intended and unintended consequences of Title IX
link
ARTICLE CONTRIBUTED BY Nara_sumaS

Evaluation

This article views Title IX's effect from 1990 - 1995 on several division i-a to division i-aaa universities. The author interprets the methods used by the universities mathematically using statistics of increased mens' sports, decreased mens' sports, and increased womens' sports. The reader assumes that decreasing womens' sports did not occur(which would not make sense anyway). The article is very technical; it shows the formulas used and explains the variables purposes in detail. This makes the author credible along with being from the Department of Economics at the University of Maryland in Baltimore. This article gives strong evidence that Title IX has helped womens' sports, even though at that time many universities decreased mens' athletics in response to title ix. Despite the author making conlusions in a certain direct, the article is not biased. It gives straightforward information to let the reader see what happened in response to title ix. Then the reader can take a position on personal interpretation.

ARTICLE CONTRIBUTED BY UncleSam

Evaluation

"What Is Title IX" is a very straightforward and simple article regarding information about title ix. It states many conditions in which title ix is upheld or violated. It explains what can happen by example of what can happen to an institution in violation of title ix. The author establishes his credibility through sharing, on his website where the article is posted, the fact that he is a professor at American University. He also put the actual claus from title on the page. It is a very useful page with very basic information and an easy-to-read Q&A format. No bias was evident, just plain facts.

ARTICLE CONTRIBUTED BY TBFrosty44

Evaluation

This article is very informative like the previous two evaluated. The approach is different though. It gives information in to form of a time line. It starts at 1971 and ends at 1999. It states the number of high school girls in sports and end with a new number of high school girls in sports. The result is a dramatic increase in the number of females in sports. It shows the reader that title ix has definitely had a positive effect for women. The article shows both the pros and cons of title ix, the pros being increased female athletics and the cons being decreased male athletics in some instances. Even though some of the schools responded to title ix by decreasing mens' athletics, the article is baised in favor of title ix. This is evident with the short story about some of Yale's female rowers in 1976. The authors establish some credibility by stating the claus of title ix and having subject matter that is fully relevant. Some statistics at the end help out also. This article is not as credible as others may be. Yet it is a wholesome and informative article.

ARTICLE CONTRIBUTED BY Nara_sumaS

Evaluation

The authors of this article are very critical of title ix enforcement and response. The argument stems from a report that authors have reviewed. It shows the title ix is beneficial to women, but some of that benefit has come from the sacrifice of men's athletic programs. This is something the authors are very upset about and explains why this happens (without the mathematics). The article has bias; however, it is not against title ix but some of the ill effects of title ix. The argument is explained thoroughly in the article. It contains relevants hypothetical examples to help the reader understand the argument. The authors are credible, both being from Virginia University Law School professors. People who study law should have a very good understanding of it, and they should be able to explain it well due to being professors.
