Faculty Activity Analysis and Planning Models in Higher Education. Project PRIME Report, Number 6.
Lorents, Alden C.
This study was conducted as part of Project PRIME (Planning Resources in Minnesota Education), which is a 1-year project to test implement the CAMPUS simulation model in 3 institutions of higher education in Minnesota. The purpose of this study was to explore a self-sampling method of collecting data on faculty to determine if there were any significant differences between the data collected via sampling and the data collected via estimating. Another purpose of the study was to assess the feasibility of using self-sampling as a method of collecting data. A secondary objective was to develop parameters for Project PRIME. Chapter I deals with the problems facing higher education, the need for planning, planning models and systems, and the role of faculty activity analysis in planning models and systems. Chapter II is a review of the literature relating to faculty activity analysis in the past and is broken down in 3 major categories: (1) defining faculty activities; (2) faculty activity measurement and data collection; and (3) uses of faculty data. Chapter III explains the experiment done as part of this research and describes the population, the self-sampling method, and the category definitions used. Chapter IV summarizes the results of the experiment described in Chapter III; and Chapter V summarizes the study and discusses implications for further research. (AF)
