EMPIRICAL TAXONOMIES OF FOUR-YEAR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES.
CREAGER, JOHN A.
A MODEL OF HIERARCHICAL GROUPING IS APPLIED TO 24 INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION. THE GROUPING IS A FUNCTION OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE INSTITUTIONS' CHARACTERISTICS. THE THREE HIERARCHICAL GROUPINGS SHOWN ARE BASED ON (1) 10 USOE CATEGORIES OF INSTITUTIONAL CHARACTERISTICS, (2) 14 INPUT AND ORIENTATION VARIABLES, AND (3) 36 COLLEGE ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES. THE FINDINGS SHOW THAT AN INCREASE IN EITHER THE NUMBER OF INSTITUTIONS OR THE NUMBER OF VARIABLES MAY RESULT IN MORE GROUPS BEING DEFINED AT THE CRITERION LEVEL. FURTHER METHODOLOGICAL ISSUES RAISED INCLUDE THE EXTENDED GROUPING OF 245 INSTITUTIONS. THE SIZE OF THE STUDY POPULATION IS LIMITED ONLY BY COMPUTER CAPACITY AND AVAILABLE DATA. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION ANNUAL MEETING (NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 16-18, 1967). (HW)
