A Comparison of District and Statewide Instructor Loads--Fall 1973. Research Report No. 74-06.
Feinblatt, Joseph G.
This publication provides data on day faculty loads in the Los Angeles Community College District for fall 1973. These data will aid in the evaluation of current programs and in planning for future program improvements. All data are based on information provided in the "California Community College Presidents' Study of Teaching Loads." The faculty loads in the Los Angeles Community College District closely parallel the average loads for the state. The average faculty load in the district, 507, is 2 percent lower than the state average of 517. The district and college loads for each major discipline are compared with the statewide average loads, and those disciplines which differ significantly from the statewide pattern in terms of their standard percent deviations are isolated for discussion. The disciplines found to have district loads significantly lower than the statewide averages include liberty science, social science, and interdisciplinary studies; those with higher than expected loads include communications, engineering, commerce, and apprenticeship. The important factors contributing to variations in faculty loads include special characteristics of particular disciplines, program size, and fluctuations in program popularity from year to year.
