The Feasibility of Analytic Models for Academic Planning: A Preliminary Analysis of Seven Quarters of Observations on the "Induced Course Load Matrix."
Jewett, Frank I.; And Others
This paper reports on a project undertaken at Humboldt State College, California, to estimate the coefficients of the so-called "induced course load matrix," perhaps the single most vital component of some models that are being developed to aid administrative planning and decisionmaking in institutions of higher education. Chapter I, the Introduction, discusses some earlier studies in this area. Chapter II discusses the development and logic of the induced course load matrix. Chapter III presents the estimated coefficients, forecasts and variances as evidenced by the project at Humboldt State College. Chapter IV presents the summary, conclusions, and suggestions for further research. The Appendices consist of (1) a description of the College, the data base, and the master file; and (2) a set of the induced course coefficients for 7 quarters of observation. A bibliography concludes the report. (AF)
