A Utility Model for Teaching Load Decisions in Academic Departments.
Massey, William F.; Zemsky, Robert
Economics of Education Review, v16 n4 p349-65 Oct 1997
Presents a utility model for academic department decision making and describes the structural specifications for analyzing it. The model confirms the class-size utility asymmetry predicted by the authors' academic rachet theory, but shows that marginal utility associated with college teaching loads is always negative. Curricular structure and disciplinary domain shift normal class size in expected directions. (15 references) (MLH)
