Faculty Rewards, Faculty Accomplishments, and Sex Discrimination .
Hoyt, Donald P.; Stewart, Michael O.
Officials at a number of higher education institutions have shown that considerable discrepancies exist in faculty salaries, corresponding to sex differences. To date, there has been no satisfactory way to examine the relationship between faculty accomplishments and rewards in the merit system. This study was undertaken to assess the nature of reward discrepancies, using self-assessments by a group of faculty members on 14 measures of reward and 46 measures of accomplishment. With the use of conventional statistical analyses, it was determined that (1) the reward system is more complex than originally assumed, since personal values play an important role; (2) not surprisingly, the structure of faculty accomplishments is complex; (3) two of the reward factors, travel and professional development assistance, are unrelated to accomplishment; and (4) the charge of sex discrimination is supported on only the monetary reward dimension.
