Institutional Research and Academic Outcomes.
Fincher, Cameron, Ed.
The theme of the 8th Annual Forum on Institutional Research was "Institutional Research and Academic Outcomes"--intended as a continuation of the 1966 Forum discussion dealing with academic inputs and the 1967 Forum on the instructional process. After an address by the Associations's president in which he urged his academic colleagues to investigate the possibilities for change in both the organizational structure of universities and the educational process, general papers were submitted on: the relationship of benefits and costs in higher education; societal impacts on higher education; and educational productivity in economic terms. Approximately 4 papers were presented in each of the areas of: Institutional Planning and Theory Models; Campus Climates; Institutional Innovations; Faculty and the Institution; Methodology and Assessment in Evaluation of Output; Institutional Budget and Cost Analysis; and Synthetic Output by Simulation. Because of space limitations in the Proceedings, some of the 32 papers were condensed from the original and many of the tables, charts and graphs were omitted. (JS)
