A Teacher Resource Allocation Decision Making Procedure for an Evening Instructional Program of a California Public Junior College.
Tayloe, Ralph Chester
A study was made of the specific cyclical sequence and detailed events needed to allocate available teacher resources to evening division courses at a California public junior college. Using data from interviews with participants and from other sources, a flow chart model was made of the allocation procedure. Sequential activities were described as a part of one of three major segments of the total process: determining foundation courses; assigning resources to such courses; and controlling course enrollment. Findings included the following: (1) foundation courses receive the teacher resources, and are generally the same as courses offered in the last similar semester; (2) foundation courses grow to serve community needs by adding specialized courses or new class sections; (3) average relative instructor cost per student (Spring 1966) was 20.66 mills after six low enrollment classes were cancelled; (4) at the end of the six-week enrollment period, 86% of total capacity was in use, effective cost averaged 24 mills, and departmental costs ranged from 17.75 to 45.87 mills per student hour for each dollar of instructor cost.
