Faculty Productivity: Practice and Policy.
Quigley, E. James
Information was obtained on current or recently proposed legislation, administrative regulations, policies, practices, reports or studies on any aspect of faculty productivity, faculty workload or teaching load, or faculty activity analysis. Responses were obtained from 34 states. Responses for the 14 states that provided reference material are categorized by four general approaches to faculty productivity as follows: a formula approach to determine productivity ratios and funding levels (Alabama, New Mexico, Ohio); a workload analysis approach with minimum workload specified (Florida, Washington, Texas); faculty activity analysis in combination with various costing studies (Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia); and faculty activity analysis for general use in budgeting process and in productivity analysis (Illinois, North Carolina). Faculty activity analysis in combination with other institutional cost data was the most common method of assessing faculty productivity. (SW)
