An Analysis of the Cost Efficiency of the Math-Science Division Instructional Personnel at Gulf Coast Community College.
Etheridge, Sandra Y.
Prepared to provide a comprehensible and useable statement of the productivity of the members of the Math-Science Division at Gulf Coast Community College (GCCC), this report presents the methods and findings of a study of the income and expenditures related to each full- and part-time faculty member in the division. Following introductory material on the purposes of the study, part I describes the Math-Science Division and the courses taught in its mathematics, physical science, and biological sciences departments. Part II addresses the funding of GCCC with respect to state allocations, tuition and other sources of income, and offers information on institutional expenditures for 1978-79. Part III explains the methods used to calculate the productivity and financial efficiency of the faculty members in terms of profit (loss) statements, and presents findings for each department. Finally, part IV presents conclusions; offers suggestions for lowering the costs of laboratory classes (which when taught by full-time faculty resulted in a net loss to the division); and discusses the appropriate and inappropriate use of evaluations based on profit (loss) statements.
