Analysis of Section Sizes, Fall 1969.
Committee of Presidents of Universities of Ontario, Toronto.
This document presents data on class sizes in the universities in Ontario. Four major disciplines were covered by the survey that elicited the data: humanities, biological sciences, physical sciences, and social sciences. The data are further broken down into method of teaching, i.e., lecture, seminar, tutorial or laboratory. Each activity of each course is capable of generating three descriptive values. If all activities are examined in these three ways, three distinct distributions can be formed. For each activity of each course these three values are: (1) number of course sections; (2) number of section hours per week (derived by multiplying the number of sections by the hours per week of scheduled activity); and (3) number of student hours per week (derived by multiplying the number of students by the hours per week of scheduled activity). The data given are for the fall term, 1969. (Author/HS)
