Feldman, David H.; Romano, Richard M. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019
The rising price of a year in college looms large on the American political landscape. Calls to make college free, or at least debt free, will figure prominently in policy and political debates going forward. To make sense of this debate, an understanding of the forces that have been driving the price of a year in postsecondary education upward…

Archibald, Robert B.; Feldman, David H. – Midwestern Higher Education Compact, 2018
This brief explores forces that have affected college tuition over the postwar period. College costs, general subsidies, and changes in the national distribution of income have all affected the trajectory of college tuition over time. The idea that more generous federal grants and loans cause upward pressure on list-price tuition has only been…

Archibald, Robert B.; Feldman, David H. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2011
Like most schools, College of William and Mary is not shy about touting its amenities. The Webpage that advertises the college's housing and dining options begins with, "Wireless and Starbucks? Thomas Jefferson never had it this good." Advertising of this sort is a double-edged public-relations sword. Colleges and universities clearly want to…

Archibald, Robert B.; Feldman, David H. – Oxford University Press, 2010
Much of what is written about colleges and universities ties rapidly rising tuition to dysfunctional behavior in the academy. Common targets of dysfunction include prestige games among universities, gold plated amenities, and bloated administration. This book offers a different view. To explain rising college cost, the authors place the higher…

Archibald, Robert B.; Feldman, David H. – Journal of Higher Education, 2008
The real cost of higher education per full-time equivalent student has grown substantially over the last 75 years, and the rapid rise since the early 1980s is a cause of considerable public concern. Opinion surveys consistently find that how much one has to pay for a college education is a serious national issue. In his July 1996 congressional…

Archibald, Robert B.; Feldman, David H. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2008
Why do costs in higher education rise more rapidly than prices in general? They do so due to four factors: (1) higher education is a personal-service industry; (2) higher education relies on highly educated labor; (3) because of increased capital usage (in the form of the new technologies), higher education's reliance on highly educated labor has…

Archibald, Robert B.; Feldman, David H. – Research in Higher Education, 2008
This paper suggests an alternative to the standard practice of measuring the graduation rate performance using regression analysis. The alternative is production frontier analysis. Production frontier analysis is appealing because it compares an institution's graduation rate to the best performance instead of the average performance. The paper…

Feldman, David H. – 1969
This research tests the implicit assumption that cognitive development is independent of ethnic background. The testing instrument used was a newly designed spatial reasoning test intended to reflect the sequence of acquisition of skills requisite to map reading and drawing. A sample of 270 black, Chinese, and white subjects (90 each at the 5th,…

Feldman, David H. – Phi Delta Kappan, 1976
Perhaps the most important implication of the metaphor is to suggest that it may well be the main purpose of education to provide conditions under which each child will identify and find satisfaction through a chosen field or fields of work. (Author)

Feldman, David H. – Roeper Review, 1983
The author cites thoughts of J. Gardner on excellence and compares them to findings of the National Commission on Excellence in Education. The author suggests the need for a reconceptualization of excellence and considers the implications for identification, selection, and programing of gifted students. (CL)

Feldman, David H. – 1970
In order to gather data bearing on the effects of individual differences of the "invariant stages" assumption of cognitive-developmental theory, 270 black, Chinese, and white subjects from 5th, 7th, and ninth grades were administered a new, 25-item, spatial reasoning task. It was predicted that age, ethnic group, and sex would…

Feldman, David H.; And Others – 1971
Jackson and Messick present the beginning of a broad theory of creativity which includes four sets of properties by which outcomes of creative processes can be judged. The properties are unusualness, appropriateness, ability to transform the constraints of reality, and ability to condense meaning. Current tests for creativity generally emphasize…

Feldman, David H.; Salomon, Gavriel – 1970
This educational research project is designed to assess an elementary student's quality of reasoning in relation to map skills and to determine spatial concept abilities. 21 activities are designed to test sense of proportion, scale, dimension, accurate relationship, and abstract thinking. The related topographical map, a Map-Study Scoring Key,…
