Assessing research-doctorate programs : a methodology study by National Research Council (États-Unis)( )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How should we assess and present information about the quality of research-doctorate programs? In recommending that the 1995 NRC rankings in Assessing the Quality of Research-Doctorate Programs: Continuity and Change be updated as soon as possible, this study presents an improved approach to doctoral program assessment which will be useful to administrators, faculty, and others with an interest in improving the education of Ph. D.s in the United States. It reviews the methodology of the 1995 NRC rankings and recommends changes, including the collection of new data about Ph. D. students, additional data about faculty, and new techniques to present data on the qualitative assessment of doctoral program reputation. It also recommends revision of the taxonomy of fields from that used in the 1995 rankings
A data-based assessment of research-doctorate programs in the United States by J. P Ostriker( )

It also includes a detailed explanation of the methodology used to collect data and calculate ranges of illustrative rankings. Included with the book is a comprehensive CD-ROM with a data tables in Microsoft Excel
Doctoral education and the faculty of the future by Ronald G Ehrenberg( )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Doctoral Education and the Faculty of the Future, scientists, social scientists, academic administrators, and policymakers describe their efforts to increase and improve the supply of future faculty. They cover topics ranging from increasing undergraduate interest in doctoral study to improving the doctoral experience and the participation of under-represented groups in doctoral education."--Jacket
Research-doctorate programs in the biomedical sciences : selected findings from the NRC assessment by Joan F., Ed Lorden( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Research Doctorate Programs in the Biomedical Sciences: Selected Findings from the nrc Assessment" examines data on the biomedical sciences programs to gather additional insight about the talent, training environment, outcomes, diversity, and international participation in the biomedical sciences workforce. This report supports an earlier publication, "a Data-Based Assessment of Research-Doctorate Programs in the United States," which analyzes data and rankings from more than 5,000 doctoral programs, 982 of which were in the biomedical sciences. "Research Doctorate Programs in the Biomedical Sciences" explores questions about degrees and completion rates as they relate to gre scores, student funding, program facilities, diversity among faculty members, and other variables. The report examines 11 biomedical science fields including cell and developmental biology, genetics and genomics, microbiology, nutrition, and physiology, among others

Market conditions and tenure for Ph. D.'s in U.S. higher education : results from the 1975 Carnegie faculty survey and a comparison with results from the 1973 ACE survey by Charlotte V Kuh( Book )

4 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data obtained from the 1975 Carnegie Survey of Teaching Faculty are used to investigate changes in tenure rate with a tenure rate estimation model used to examine the 1973 survey for the years that are covered by both surveys. There is a rapid fall in the medium time to tenure during the 1960's when there was the most rapid increase in enrollments. Quantitatively, however, the medium times to tenure estimated from the 1975 data are lower than those estimated from the 1973 data for the earlier years (1950-1968). The appendix contains the complete tabulation of results from the 1975 survey. (Author/SPG)
Preserving a lost generation : policies to assure a steady flow of young scholars until the year 2000 : a report and recommendations by Roy Radner( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If no radical changes occur over the next 10 years in the aggregate relationships among college-age cohort sizes, enrollment figures and ratios of doctoral faculty-to-students, the mid-l980's and mid-l900's will see precipitous, but probably temporary declines in the demand for new Ph. D. faculty. Without the implementation of policies designed to offset such cyclical fluctuations, there will be serious consequences for academic research and teaching. Several innovative policies and recommendations to insure a moderate but steady flow of young doctorate scholars into academia are detailed and their consequences in terms of faculty demography and program costs are explained. On the national level, a Junior Scholars Program that would provide limited research positions is recommended. On the institutional level, early retirement programs introduced to fit projected changes in age structure and teaching demand are suggested. The importance of the timing of implementation for any of these programs is stressed. Statistical orojections and summaries of previous related reoorts are appended. (Author/BH)
Time to Tenure and the Market for Ph. D.'S in U.S. Higher Education by Charlotte V Kuh( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a market where salary adjustment is limited by equity constraints within ranks and across fields, non-salary adjustment to changing market conditions is likely to occur. Changes in the rate at which nontenured faculty are granted tenure is one such adjustment. A logit model that explains time to tenure as dependent on the time since an individual received his Ph. D. and market conditions is estimated using data from two large surveys of faculty. Estimated time to tenure is then related to other possible measures of excess demand or supply. It is found that the smaller the increase in starting salary, controlling for salary level, the lower is time to tenure. (Author)
Market Conditions and Tenure in U.S. Higher Education 1955-1973. Technical Report No. 2 by Roy Radner( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question of tenure as an economic variable is discussed. Using data from the 1973 ACE Survey of Teaching Faculty, a statistical model is provided to estimate time from Ph. D. to tenure. Results show that the tenure rate (the chance that a nontenured faculty member will be granted tenure in any given year) did increase during the period of rapid growth in academia from 1960 to 1968 in all types of institutions and in all fields within these institutions. After 1968, the tenure rate continued to increase in public institutions, but more slowly. However, in private institutions, the tenure rate remained constant or declined between 1968 and 1972. It is concluded that tenure rate did behave as an economic variable in the sense that higher tenure rates occurred at the same time as the rapid increase in employment in academia. The appendices contain a two-way logit model for the estimation of age and date effects, and complete tabulation of results. (SPG)
Temporal Adjustment in Academic Labor Markets Time to Ph.D. AIR Forum Paper 1978 by Charlotte V Kuh( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A research project is described that concerns "temporal adjustment" as one form of a non-wage adjustment in the academic labor market. Receipt of the doctorate, the number and length of post-doctoral fellowships, and the achievement of tenure are temporal factors in academic careers. The change in timing of these factors is a form of adjustment to market conditions. The length of time it takes an individual to receive a Ph.D. from the time he finishes his B.A. is examined. Data from surveys of the American Council on Education and the National Research Council are cited for the discussion of changes in time to Ph.D. over time. The data cover comprehensively all doctorates received from U.S. universities. The American Council on Education Survey of Teaching Faculty, conducted in 1973, provides information on people currently employed in academia. A statistical model that separates age effects of time to Ph.D. from date effects is described. Implications of estimation results for the formal model are discussed, and graphs are included. (SW)
