Авторы: Ostriker J., Holland P., Kuh C.
A Data-Based Assessment of Research-Doctorate Programs in the United States provides an unparalleled dataset that can be used to assess the quality and effectiveness of doctoral programmes based on measures important to faculty, students, administrators, funders, and other stakeholders. The data, collected for the 2005-2006 academic year from more than 5,000 doctoral programmes at 212 universities, cover such characteristics as faculty publications, grants, and awards; student GRE scores, financial support, and employment outcomes; and programme size, time to degree, and faculty composition. Measures of faculty and student diversity are also included. In addition to the data, the book contains illustrative ranges of rankings for each programme, as well as ranges of rankings for three dimensions of programme quality: (1) research activity, (2) student support and outcomes, and (3) diversity of the academic environment. The book also features a detailed explanation of the methodology used to collect data and calculate ranges of rankings. Accompanying the book is a comprehensive CD-ROM with a data table in Microsoft Excel. As an aid to users, the data table is offered with demonstrations of some Microsoft Excel features that may enhance the usability of the spreadsheet, such as hiding and un-hiding columns, copying and pasting columns to a new worksheet, and filtering and sorting data. Also provided with the data table are a set of scenarios that show how typical users may want to extract data from the spreadsheet. PhDs.org, an independent website not affiliated with the National Research Council, incorporated data from the research-doctorate assessment into its Graduate School Guide. Users of the Guide can choose the weights assigned to the programme characteristics measured by the National Research Council and others, and rank graduate programmes according to their own priorities.
