Name of Department
Code for Department - for database use.
The data in this section is provided for each department unless the program under review is an interdisciplinary program (usually reported under the Dean's Office).
Part A is completed to capture the total General Use Instructional expenditures for the department for the past five years. The General Use definition is the same as that used for the Kansas Cost Study that includes Sponsored Research Overhead funding. The expenditures are separated by Salaries/Benefits and Other Operating Expenditures (OOE). The third line is the total of Salaries/Benefits and OOE. The five-year growth trend should be expressed in percent of the present growth or decline in dollars for the five-year period reported. The Department General Use Instructional Expenditures as a percent of the Institution's General Use Instructional Expenditures is calculated by dividing line three by the Institution's Total General Use Instructional Expenditures. The five-year growth trend should be expressed in percent of the present growth or decline in percent of Institutional Instructional Expenditures for the five-year period.
Part B should reflect the total student credit hours (SCH) generated over a five-year period. This section shows the total number of SCH taught for the summer, fall, and spring semesters of each fiscal year requested and includes base on- and off-campus courses and on-campus self-funded courses. The student credit hour production should be reported by level and a total of all the levels. Undergraduate SCH includes the lower level courses (course number 0 to 299) and upper level courses (course number 300 to 699). Line 6 is the percent of undergraduate SCH produced by the department in relation to the Institution's undergraduate SCH produced for each fiscal year. Graduate SCH includes the graduate 1 level courses (course number 700 to 899) and graduate 2 level courses (course number 900 to 999). Line 7 is the percent of graduate SCH produced by the department in relation to the Institution's total graduate SCH produced for each fiscal year.
The general principles and definitions utilized in the Kansas Cost Study govern the departmental cost per credit hour identified in this item. For each fiscal year, report the cost per credit hour for each level from the HEGIS discipline in which the department is located.
Part E will show the size and demographics of the department based on actual number of faculty appointments rather than budgeted positions. (1) Report the departmental total number (headcount) of instructional/research/public service full-time personnel who are tenured or on tenure-track with 50% or more of their primary assignment in instruction (for K-State, those faculty members with assigned FTE to service codes of A, B, C, D, E, H, I, J, and L that equal 0.50 FTE or greater). This is similar to the instructions used for the Board of Regents DBTF Report. (2) From the number reported in line 1, report the number and percent of faculty with terminal degrees. Also, define what is meant by terminal degrees (if it is different than a Ph.D.) since some program areas have different standards for terminal degrees. (3) From the number reported in line 1, report the percent and number who have tenure. (4) Calculate the five-year growth trend (percent) in headcount. (5) Report the full-time equivalent (FTE) of instructional faculty in the department. For K-State, that includes the assigned FTE to service codes of A, B, C, D, E, H, I, J, and L for the entire department regardless of primary responsibility (instruction, research or public service).
Part F is reflecting the faculty teaching loads from the Fall Course Activity Loads Report. (1) Report the Department Instructional FTE of tenure/tenure-track faculty. This would include all faculty members who have 50 percent or more of their assignment in instruction. (2) Report the graduate teaching assistants (GTA) FTE who are assigned to each department. Designate the GTA FTE that are instructor of record and that are not instructor of record. Instructor of record is defined as those GTAs who assign the grades for the class or who have total responsibility for the class from writing class notes, writing tests, evaluating class work and assigning final grades. (3) Report all other instructional FTE within the department that does not fall in either line 1 or line 2 and are contributing to the department. Adjunct faculty who are contributing would be counted as having 0.25 FTE in the department. (4) This is the sum of FTE (line1 through line 3). (5) Report the student credit hours (SCH) generated by the department's tenure/tenure-track faculty. (6) Report the student credit hours (SCH) generated by the department's GTAs who are instructor of record. (7) Report the student credit hours (SCH) generated by the department's other instructional faculty. (8) This is the sum of SCH (line 5 through line 7). Lines 9 through 12 are the average SCH per FTE for each of the designated areas.
The data in this section is provided for each degree program (discipline) in the department. If a department has more than one degree program, this section is completed for each program.
The name of the degree program.
Classification of Instructional Programs. NCES publication that classifies instructional program by standard terminology for curriculum and instruction in local and state school systems and postsecondary institutions.
Report the number of declared majors in this department as of the fall 20 th day for the past five fall semesters. (1) Freshmen and Sophomores; (2) Juniors, Seniors, and 5 th year Seniors; (3) Masters; (4) First-Professional (DVM); (5) Doctorates; (6) Total number of majors in the department. The number of undergraduate majors includes second majors but excludes minors.
Report the Average ACT composite score, the lowest ACT score, the highest ACT score, the number reporting an ACT score, and the percent who have an ACT score for juniors, seniors, and 5 th year seniors for the past five fall semesters.
Report the number of degrees conferred for this discipline (major) for the past five fiscal years. The fiscal year includes summer, fall, and spring graduations. Degrees earned but not yet conferred should not be reported. If a student received two degrees at different levels, report each degree in its appropriate classification. If a student graduates with a major in two program specialties, report the degree in the field in which the degree was awarded. If a student actually receives two degrees based on two independent courses of study, report each degree under the appropriate program category. Exclude honorary degrees, awards, and certificates. List the concentrations by degree level if a degree program confers a degree with several different concentrations/options.
