The National Academy of Kinesiology 2010 Review and Evaluation of Doctoral Programs in Kinesiology
Spirduso, Waneen; Reeve, T. Gilmour
Quest, v63 n4 p411-440 2011
In 2010, the National Academy of Kinesiology (NAK) conducted its second national doctoral program survey, based on faculty and student data from 2005 to 2009. Total T-scores for each school were derived from the sum of nine faculty indices and seven student indices. Faculty indices, based on research, presentations, grants, and honors, made up 66%, and student indices based on GRE scores, financial support, admission/acceptance characteristics, national quantitative scores and employment, made up 34% of the Total T-scores. Two rankings of these Total T-scores for the doctoral programs are presented: unadjusted and adjusted for faculty and student size. Total T-scores for each index for each school and the aggregate research funds expended by all schools are provided. These rankings are compared with those from the NAK 2005 survey and also to a ranking derived by the authors from published scores in the 2010 National Research Council doctoral program evaluation. (Contains 11 tables and 2 notes.)
