Rau, William; Leonard, Wilbert M., II
American Sociologist, v21 n3 p232-56 Fall 1990
Analyzes 60 sociology doctoral programs from 1975 through 1980. Measures per capita and gross productivity of each department. Shows that conventional assessment measures contain deficiencies. Documents a tendency for conflict between productivity and graduate education. Includes recommendations for future assessments that would measure not only research productivity but also the quality of training graduate students receive. (NL)
