A NEW TOOL FOR EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATORS. EDUCATIONAL EFFICIENCY THROUGH SIMULATION ANALYSIS.
JUDY, RICHARD W.; LEVINE, JACK B.
IN A STUDY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO, CANADA, A SIMULATION MODEL WAS DEVELOPED TO AID INSTITUTIONAL PLANNING FOR THE UNDERGRADUATE LEVEL OF HIGHER EDUCATION. BY DEVELOPING A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR THE QUANTIFICATION OF RESOURCE MANAGEMENT, THE AUTHORS EXPLORE THE EDUCATION FUNCTION IN TERMS OF THE FACTORS OF CONTROL AFFECTING DECISION MAKING BY THE ADMINISTRATION. THE SYSTEM SIMULATION MODEL "CAMPUS", IMITATES THE INTERACTION OF IMPORTANT ACTIVITY LEVELS, UNCONTROLLABLE VARIABLES, SYSTEM PARAMETERS AND RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS. THE AREAS ANALYZED BY USING THE MODEL ARE ENROLLMENT FORMULATION, RESOURCE LOADING, SPACE REQUIREMENTS AND BUDGETARY CALCULATION. BENEFITS OF THIS SYSTEM INCLUDE INFORMATION FOR PLANNING, JUSTIFICATION OF BUDGETS AND EVALUATION OF PROPOSED CHANGES IN SYSTEM PARAMETERS. COPIES OF THIS BOOK ARE AVAILABLE FOR $1.00 FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO PRESS, UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO, TORONTO 5, CANADA. (JP)
