Staffing Army ROTC at colleges and universities : alternatives for reducing the use of active-duty soldiers by Charles A Goldman( )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 1,816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increased tempo and range of military operations, coupled with reduced manning levels, are exerting pressure on the Army to use its active-duty soldiers optimally. Consequently, the Army is seeking opportunities to fill positions now occupied by active-duty soldiers with other personnel. Specifically, a recent Armywide Institutional I TDA Redesign Study called for the design and testing of staffing alternatives for the Senior Reserve Officer Training Corps (SROTC) program using a combination of Active Component, Reserve Component, or former military personnel. In support of this requirement, RAND was asked to develop staffing alternatives and design a test of their effectiveness. This report discusses such alternatives and describes a test design to assess their feasibility for implementation throughout SROTC
Allocating scholarships for Army ROTC by Charles A Goldman( )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the face of rising tuition costs and the increased importance of scholarships to meeting its commission mission, the Army designed a new scholarship program, known as the tiered scholarship program because it offered four different scholarship values (called tiers). Under the new program, enrollments at public colleges increased modestly and the Army controlled the total scholarship cost. But as feared, many fewer of the nation's most academically able students enrolled in ROTC, and the programs at the nation's most prestigious private colleges and universities were facing the prospect of closure. Based on these findings, the authors recommended and the Army implemented a high-value scholarship targeted to some prestigious private colleges. The study also analyzes several complete scholarship programs to replace the tiered scholarships. The analysis supports plans that continue to offer high-value scholarships at some prestigious private schools, while offering lower values at other schools. Although it would entail some significant tradeoffs, the authors have also presented a plan that would offer greater values to in-state students at public schools--a large potential market, especially if tuition increases in the private schools do not abate in the decade ahead. These offers would require congressional approval because the law currently prohibits the use of scholarships for room and board, which constitute the largest portion of these in-state students' expenses to attend college
Assessing the potential to expand community college baccalaureate programs in Texas by Lindsay Daugherty( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many workforce-development needs, particularly those requiring baccalaureate degrees, remain unmet in some areas of Texas. Employers and students are calling for additional programs to develop workplace skills and to provide opportunities for career advancement. On May 22, 2013, the Texas Legislature approved a bill mandating a study on whether community college baccalaureate degree programs should be expanded in Texas. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board asked the RAND Corporation to partner with the Texas Higher Education Policy Initiative to conduct the study. This report summarizes a longer research report in which the authors assess unmet workforce-development needs in nursing and the applied sciences, assess the arguments for and against baccalaureate expansion, and recommend potential activities to support implementation of any new policies undertaken to expand community college baccalaureate programs. They find significant need for more baccalaureate nurses, although rapidly growing distance learning programs may be able to meet this need. The authors find varying needs for the four applied science occupations they examined: computer and information technology, management of fire sciences, management of production/operations technicians, and health information technology. While expanding community college baccalaureate degree programs could help meet unmet needs and increase degree attainment among students, there are concerns about costs, mission creep at community colleges, counterproductive competition between community colleges and universities, and a decline in the overall quality of a Texas baccalaureate. The authors discuss the inherent tradeoffs that policymakers face in this regard
Paying for university research facilities and administration by Charles A Goldman( )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Federal spending for scientific research at U.S. academic institutions equals approximately $15 billion each year. According to the analysis in this report, about three-quarters of this amount supports the direct costs of conducting research. The other one-quarter covers facilities and administrative (F & A) costs. F & A costs encompass spending on such items as facilities maintenance and renewal, libraries, and the salaries of departmental and central office staff. Universities share in the costs of research, including the F & A costs. Some costs are not reimbursed by the federal government, including administrative costs above a cap. The authors estimate that universities pay between $0.7 and $1.5 billion in F & A costs that would otherwise be eligible for federal reimbursement. The research partnership between the federal government and universities is widely praised for its contributions to the public welfare. The costs shared by each participant in the system are subject to policy debate and negotiation. This report provides up-to-date quantitative and qualitative data on F & A costs to inform that policy debate

11 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The heart of the book is an analysis showing how these strategies are carried out based on site-visit data from 26 highly diverse colleges and universities. This broad sampling covers all geographic regions of the country and every type of institution from elite research universities to community colleges. The authors then consider what strategies are possible in particular markets and how they affect students and competing institutions. Their conclusions draws out the implications of strategy and competition for the various customers of the U.S. higher education industry. Groundbreaking and genuinely exploratory in methodology, In Pursuit of Prestige will be essential reading for anyone concerned with the future of higher education."--Jacket
Brain Korea 21 phase II : a new evaluation model by So-mi Sŏng( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late 1990s, the Korea Ministry of Education and Human Resources, in response to concern over the relatively low standing of the nation's universities and researchers, launched the Brain Korea 21 program BK21). BK21 seeks to make Korean research universities globally competitive and to produce more high-quality researchers in Korea. It provides fellowship funding to graduate students and professors in research groups at top Korean universities. Concentrating on the second phase of BK21, which will continue until 2012, the authors develop quantitative and qualitative models and methods to evaluate how well BK21 is fulfilling its goals, suggest a database of measures needed for that evaluation, and make suggestions for the future management of the program. The measurement methods proposed in this book can assess not only the progress of the BK21 program but also the health and development of the Korean university system as a whole. Korean university research could be stimulated further through a combination of competitive awards for project funding, portable fellowships for graduate students who would select their universities, and university access to capital for construction of first-rate research facilities
The PhD factory : training and employment of science and engineering doctorates in the United States by Charles A Goldman( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on new research exploring the training and employment of science and engineering PhDs in the United States, this book predicts that with constant future resources and with constant domestic employment outside academe, academic departments will produce an average 20% to 24% annual excess of new Ph. D.s over employment opportunities. The models show that expanding university research and education will make the imbalance worse over the long run. These arguments are advanced in these chapters: (1) "The National Investment in PhDs"; (2) "The System of Training and Employing PhDs"; (3) "The Employment Gap for PhD Scientists and Engineers"; (4) "Production of Teaching and Research in Departments"; (5) "Student Attainment of the PhD"; (6) "Faculty Career Patterns"; (7) "Conclusions about the Academic System"; (8) "Modeling the Employment Gap for PhD Scientists and Engineers"; (9) "Modeling Production of Teaching and Research in Departments"; (10) "Modeling Student Attainment of the PhD"; (11) "Modeling Faculty Career Patterns"; and (12) "Future Directions in Research." An appendix discusses the treatment of departments in the modeling. (Contains 35 tables, 27 figures, and 36 references.) (Sld)
Education for a new era : design and implementation of K-12 education reform in Qatar by Dominic J Brewer( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The leadership of Qatar has a social and political vision that calls for improving the outcomes of the Qatari K-12 education system. With this vision in mind, the leadership asked RAND to examine Qatar's K-12 education system, to recommend options for building a world-class system, and, subsequently, to develop the chosen option and support its implementation. The option that was selected includes internationally benchmarked curriculum standards, national testing based on those standards, independent government-funded schools, and parental choice among schools using annual school report cards. This monograph describes Phase I (2001-2004) of the Qatari education reform initiative, Education for a New Era, based on RAND's experiences as part of this ambitious effort involving Qataris and Qatari organizations, and international consultants and contractors

Building a successful Palestinian state by Robert Edwards Hunter( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States, the European Union, Russia, and the United Nations-along with Israel and the Palestinian Authority-all officially support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. This study focuses on a single analytical question: How can an independent Palestinian state, if created, be made successful? This book, a collaboration between two units of the RAND Corporation--RAND Health and the RAND Center for Middle East Public Policy--examines what it will take to put the new state on the road to stability and economic, political, and social prosperity over the first decade of its independence. The authors examine options for strengthening the governance of the new state and the structures and processes that will ensure its public safety and security. They describe approaches for promoting the state's economic development, access to safe and adequate supplies of water, health and health care, and education, identifying ways that leverage Palestine's many strengths and address the many challenges a new state will face. Finally, the authors estimate the investment required over the first ten years of statehood to help ensure security, build infrastructure, and facilitate the success of the new state.

Ross Anthony, and Michael Schoenbaum, The Arc: A Formal Structure for a Palestinian State, Santa Monica, Calif.: RAND Corporation, MG-327-1-GG, 2007
IN PURSUIT OF PRESTIGE by Dominic J Brewer( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines higher education as an industry. The authors focus on how institutions serve four identifiable markets that generate revenues (student enrollment, research funding, public fiscal support, and private giving). They describe and analyze higher educational institutions investment, pricing, and marketing behaviors, and the nature of competition among schools. They review the industry's basic conditions and market structure, then define the three key dimensions - degree level, scope, and resource allocation - by which institutions map out strategies for competing for markets."
Ratepayer-funded energy-efficiency programs in a restructured electricity industry : issues and options for regulators and legislators by Joseph H Eto( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Electric industry restructuring requires state regulators and legislators to re-examine the purposes served by and the continuing need for ratepayer-funded energy-efficiency programs, as well as the mechanisms to collect funds for these programs and the institutions appropriate to administer them. This paper offers background to these issues and a series of recommendations based on analysis of recent state experiences. Our recommendations are summarized
Engaging China in the international export control process : options for U.S. policy by Charles A Goldman( )

This document provides options for U.S. policy that will enhance China's participation in the control of international transfers of destabilizing military or dual-use technology
Implementation of the K/12 education reform in Qatar's schools by Gail Zellman( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The leadership of Qatar is greatly invested in its K-12 education reform, Education for a New Era, because it views education as the key to the nation's economic and social progress. This study, one of a number of RAND studies that trace and document the reform process in Qatar, was designed to assess progress made in the first years of the K-12 reform's implementation in Qatar's schools. The study team relied on two complementary approaches -- a case study analysis of classroom- and school-level observational and interview data from 16 schools (four traditional, Ministry of Education schools; 12 new, Independent schools), and an analysis of national survey and student performance data -- to assess the school-level implementation of key reform components and a key interim reform output: the academic performance of students in Independent schools compared with that of students in Ministry schools. The study's findings, based on data collected from 2004 to 2007, indicate that in the early years: (1) The reform was working, but more progress was needed. The new, Independent schools were more student focused than were Ministry schools and differed from Ministry schools in many expected ways; principals, teachers, parents, and students, for the most part, recognized and appreciated the differences. (2) Few changes had occurred in the Ministry schools. (3) Although reform institutions and components were in place, a substantial number of policy changes precipitated by implementation concerns during these early years resulted in uncertainty and concern among stakeholders, potentially limiting the reform's future power. (4) Independent school students outperformed their Ministry peers on new national assessments in Arabic and English. Independent school students assessed in Arabic also outperformed Ministry students in mathematics and science. However, most students were not yet meeting the reform's new, higher standards
Helping a Palestinian state succeed : key findings( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All officially support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. This book summarizes research conducted by the RAND Corporation from September 2002 to September 2004 to develop recommendations, based on rigorous analysis, about steps that Palestinians, Israel, the United States, and the international community could take to promote the success of a new state if it is established. The first study identified the requirements for a successful Palestinian state. The study team surveyed a broad array of political, economic, social, resource, and environmental challenges that a new Palestinian state would face. They also estimated the investment required over the first ten years of statehood to help ensure security, build infrastructure, and facilitate the success of the new state. The second study explored options for addressing the housing, transportation, and related infrastructure needs of a burgeoning Palestinian population
Education and the Asian surge : a comparison of the education systems in India and China by Charles A Goldman( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China and India have faced similar conditions and challenges in education during their rapid industrial and social transformation. The two countries started building their national education systems under comparable conditions in the late 1940s. However, different policies, strategies, and historical circumstances have led them through different routes. China has outperformed India in primary and secondary education along a broad spectrum of access, quality, and delivery indicators. India, on the other hand, enjoys a competitive edge over China in higher education. Recently, India has begun catching up with China in K-12 education, while China has already overtaken India in terms of the college enrollment and number of graduates. The respective successes and challenges of the Chinese and Indian education systems offer valuable lessons for both countries and for the rest of the developing world. The authors identify issues that deserve further attention of researchers and policymakers
Review of demand-side bidding programs : impacts, costs and cost-effectiveness by Charles A Goldman( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In December 1987, Central Maine Power (CMP) instituted the first competitive bidding program that allowed developers to propose installation of conservation measures. Since then, about 30 utilities in 14 states have solicited bids from energy service companies (ESCOs) and customers to reduce energy demand in residential homes and in commercial and industrial facilities. Interest in the use of competitive procurement mechanisms for demand-side resources continues to grow. In this study, the authors build upon earlier work conducted by LBL in collaboration with others (Goldman and Busch 1992; Wolcott and Goldman 1992). They have developed methods to compare bid prices and program costs among utilities. They also characterize approaches used by utilities and developers to allocate risks associated with DSM resources based on their review of a large sample of signed contracts. These contracts are analyzed in some detail because they provide insights into the evolving roles and responsibilities of utilities, customers, and third party contractors in providing demand-side management (DSM) services. The analysis also highlights differences in the allocation of risks between traditional utility rebate programs and DSM bidding programs
Geographic and Demographic Representativeness of the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps by Charles A Goldman( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) program serves more than 550,000 high school students each year, many of whom are at risk for failing academically or dropping out of school. Although these programs are widely distributed--programs operate in 50 states, four U.S. territories, and Department of Defense Education Activity schools--there has been recent congressional interest in whether the schools participating in JROTC programs are representative with respect to geographic area, with a special focus on whether rural areas are adequately represented. In response to these interests and motivations, this study had two primary objectives: Examine the representativeness of JROTC at the school level with respect to geography and demographics and determine how federal laws and policies affect starting and sustaining JROTC units. RAND researchers merged JROTC program data with public high school data from the National Center for Education Statistics Common Core of Data to analyze demographic and geographic representativeness at the school level. Service and school representatives were interviewed on such topics as benefits of JROTC for the students, challenges with JROTC-unit administration, and instructor hiring. The authors found that JROTC has strong representation among schools with demographically diverse populations. However, geographically, JROTC is underrepresented in rural areas and in about two-thirds of states. A number of factors present challenges for improving representativeness, and the report offers several policy recommendations for addressing these factors, including the expansion of the National Defense Cadet Corps"--Publisher's description
