Comparative Effectiveness of Alternative Administrative Structures. Annex -- Case Study Questionnaires. Programme on Institutional Management in Higher Education.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
A set of detailed questionnaires was developed to test a number of hypotheses related to the definition and measurement of practical measures of effectiveness of administration in institutions of higher education. The questionnaires served as the basis of a set of case studies undertaken simultaneously in 19 volunteer institutions during March-May, 1974. The questionnaires are presented, together with their instructions, dealing with departmental procedures and an information sheet providing data on basic statistics of the institution, its formal structure, its status relative to environmental constraints, the state of management technology, and the faculty and departments. An additional administrative questionnaire and one on contingency studies, which should provide some basis for direct objective comparison between the processes of administration at different level of higher education, are also provided. A glossary is included. (LBH)
