The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Web-based Injury Surveillance System (ISS) involves hundreds of certified athletic trainers (ATC) in the USA entering injury surveillance data into a web-based system. These data is used by NCAA committees to make decisions relevant to student-athlete welfare, and are used by sports medicine researchers around the world. The system is widely regarded as the premier sports injury surveillance system in the world. However, the validity and reliability of this data are currently unknown. This study will quantitatively establish the reliability and validity of the system. Abstractors will visit a sample of up to 15 schools contributing data to the system, and will abstract data on sports-related medical attention from sources other than the ISS (hard copy files or other databases). This data will be compared to the ISS data to establish the reliability and validity of the ISS database.
