RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PERSONNEL POLICIES AND FACULTY LIFE-RECORD DATA IN PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES.
HENDRIX, VERNON L.
ADMINISTRATION POLICIES ON THREE INDEPENDENT VARIABLES (RANK, TENURE, AND EVALUATION) RESULT IN DIFFERENTIAL SELECTION OF FACULTY MEMBERS, AS SHOWN BY 57 VARIABLES IN BIOGRAPHICAL DATA OF SUCH FACULTY. THESE VARIABLES INCLUDE AGE, SEX, AMOUNT AND KIND OF EXPERIENCE, SOCIAL SKILL, COMMUNITY OR PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES, FAMILY BACKGROUND, ETC. A GROUP OF 251 FACULTY MEMBERS WAS SELECTED ACCORDING TO THESE CRITERIA--(1) FULL-TIME STATUS, (2) LACK OF ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES, AND (3) TEACHING ASSIGNMENTS PRIMARILY IN AREAS APPROVED FOR STATE AID. FROM THEIR RESPONSES, A 4-DIMENSIONAL CHI-SQUARE ANALYSIS WAS CONDUCTED, DISPLAYING THE INTERACTIONS AMONG THE INDEPENDENT VARIABLES AND THE DEPENDENT VARIABLES. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT (1) RELATIONSHIPS ASSOCIATED WITH PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF TENURE, EITHER DESIRABLE OR UNDESIRABLE, GIVE NO INDICATION OF THE BEST POLICY TO PURSUE, (2) RELATIONSHIPS ASSOCIATED WITH EVALUATION INDICATE THAT A FORMAL POLICY IS WORTHWHILE AND CONTRIBUTES TO EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTION, AND (3) RELATIONSHIPS ASSOCIATED WITH RANK INDICATE THAT A POLICY OF ACADEMIC RANKING IS NOT WORTHWHILE AND INTERFERES WITH EFFECTIVE OPERATION OF THE COLLEGE.
