dc.description.abstract The history of intercollegiate debate is rich with changes in organizational structures and debate practices. Over the course of time, coaches and students interested in a range of educational and competitive goals have provoked constant evolution in the debate formats used. The NDT-CEDA, NPDA, IPDA, NFA-LD formats were all created in response to specific pressures and drives within the debate community. Using contemporary survey data. we analyze the attitudes and beliefs of former and current competitors, coaches, and judges surrounding "issues of controversy" that are currently engendering the most recent wave of change within debate. Centering on relationships between practices, pedagogical values, and governing documents, we find evidence that salience and support of practices is based upon acceptance of governing documents and stated pedagogical values. Whether or not any given practice is perceived as fun was shown as having a particularly large influence on that acceptance of that practice. en_US
