Instructional Productivity and the Utilization of Faculty Resources in the State University System of Florida.
Lassiter, Roy L., Jr.
An examination of the nine institutions that comprise the State University System of Florida attempted to: (1) determine the instructional and instructional-related productivity and the overall utilization of faculty resources as influenced by the size, mission, and complexity of individual institutions, and by the level and discipline of the instructional activity; (2) examine the size of classes as related to the productivity of faculty resources among the institutions, disciplines, and levels; (3) investigate some of the significant characteristics of the "production function" for instructional and related activities; (4) test the utility of the HEGIS discipline classifications as the basis for measuring and comparing faculty productivity, and for the allocation of resources; (5) determine the longer-term changes in faculty productivity, and the differential shifts between disciplines and institutions; (6) evaluate the resource allocation model currently employed in the State University System; and (7) provide the basis for interpreting and assessing the cost, or expenditure, approach to the measurement of resource utilization that is currently being developed for the system.
