Twenty-seven situations were selected from Big Ten Athletic Conference basketball game film and incorporated into a master film. The film was shown to fort y-five Atlantic Coast Conference basketball officials and forty-five officials of the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials, Board 134. Each official viewed the film and responded to each situation with one of three possible responses: foul on light jersey, foul on dark jersey, or no foul . Further, each subject completed a questionnaire regarding their officiating experience, age, education, other officiating activities, basketball coaching experience, and basketball playing experience.
