    Dear Colleagues,

    First, I would like thank the respondents to the survey. I do appreciate
    the time that it took to respond. I will now present some numbers and brief
    notes when it clarifies things.

    THE TOTAL NUMBER OF RESPONDENTS WAS 17

    1. What is the average class size for introductory biomechanics?
    RESPONSE: mean=76 students range 15-140 students.

    2. Do you teach multiple sections of introductory biomechanics?
    RESPONSE: yes=15/17 no=2/17
    Note: this includes programs that offered introductory biomechanics more
    than once per year.

    3. What is the failure rate for introductory biomechanics?
    RESPONSE: mean=10% range 1-20%
    Note: this information was unknown to one respondent.

    4. What are the prerequisites for introductory biomechanics?
    RESPONSE:
    Anatomy=12/17
    Physics=8/17
    Physiology=2/17
    Kinesiology=3/17
    Math=10/17
    Computer Science=1/17
    Biology=3/17
    Note: When there was no biological science prerequisite, there was a
    physical science prerequisite.

    5. What are the entrance requirements for your program?
    RESPONSE: This question was too vague to formulate a summary.

    6. What is the average class size for advanced biomechanics?
    RESPONSE: mean=23 students range=5-80 students
    Note: 14 respondents had an advanced biomechanics course.

    7. Do you teach multiple sections of your advanced biomechanics courses?
    RESPONSE: yes=5/14 no=9/14

    8. What are there prerequisites for advanced biomechanics?
    RESPONSE: Introductory biomechanics=14/14
    Note: This includes prerequisites for the introductory
