Faculty Productivity in Colleges/Schools of Education.
Harder, Martha
The results of a survey of 65 colleges of education on how they evaluated the productivity of their faculty are reported. Most of the responding institutions agreed with a definition of productivity as the sum of all activities which are related either directly or indirectly to professional duties, responsibilities, and interests. The 21 doctoral degree-granting colleges indicated a slightly higher amount of concern about the level and evaluation of faculty productivity than did the other institutions. The data are organized into four broad areas. In the section on teaching loads, full-time teaching loads, indexing teaching loads, workload specifications, and off-campus teaching are covered. Information dealing with productivity calculations included faculty classifications, productivity aggregation, and frequency of data gathering. A section on factors in decision making elicited responses on the importance of teaching, research, service, merit evaluations, and estimations of productivity. A section on methods being used to increase faculty productivity lists the ten general categories mentioned most frequently. Twenty conclusions based on the findings are summarized. (FG)
