Using National Survey of Postsecondary Faculty Data To Form Disciplinary Specific Comparative Productivity Figures for Public Institutions with Significant Graduate and Research Programs. AIR 2000 Annual Forum Paper.
Chatman, Steve
This study used the restricted access database of the 1993 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty to examine faculty workload by academic discipline for full-time regularly appointed teaching and research faculty in public Carnegie research I and II and Doctoral I and II institutions (n=2,056). Data are reported for 14 disciplinary areas (agriculture, business, education, engineering, fine arts, health, English, comminations, history, biology, physical science, mathematics, economics, psychology, and sociology) and include teaching load by student level, research funding by source, and scholarly productivity. Chi-square analysis considered whether faculty at different Carnegie class institutions were more or less likely to engage in an activity, and whether there was a difference in magnitude if engaged. In Chi-square analyses significant at the 0.05 level, teaching was associated with Carnegie class in 19 of 120 analyses, obtaining external funding was associated in 3 analyses, and outcomes of publishing was significant in only 1 case. Differences by magnitude were found in 5 instances. There are nine data tables and nine figures. (Contains 12 references.) (CH)
