m Biocheniistrv Programs . _ , In this chapter 139 research-doctorate programs in biochemistry are assessed. mese programs, according to the information supplied by their universities, have accounted for 2,753 doctoral degrees awarded during the FY1976-80 period--approximately 89 percent of the aggregate number of biochemistry doctorates earned from U.S. universities in this five-year span. Because biochemistry transcends the boundaries of many other biological science disciplines and because biochemistry programs may be found in a variety of institutional settings (including biology departments, medical school departments, agricultural school departments, etc.), the committee encountered difficulty in identifying a comprehensive set of research-doctorate programs that have Produced graduates in this discipline. - ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ on one average, z~ ru~-~zme and part- t~me students ~ntena~ng to earn doctorates were enrolled in a program in December 1980, with an average faculty size of 19 members .2 Most of the 139 programs, 1 isted in Table 3.1, are located in biochemistry or biological chemistry departments. Approximately 10 percent are found in departments of chemistry. Fourteen programs were initiated since 1970, and each of 10 universities--Boston University, University of California {San Diego), Harvard University, University of Kansas, Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University, University of Pittsburgh, SUNY at Buffalo, West Virginia University, and University of Wisconsin (Madison)--includes two biochemistry programs in the study. - ~~ ~ - ~~~ In anion to the lZ9 institutions represented in this disci- pline, another 15 were initially identified as meeting the criteria3 for inclusion in the assessment: data from the NRC's Survey of Earned Doctorates indicate that 3,109 research doctorates in biochemistry were awarded by U.S. universities between FY1976 and FY1980. 2 See the reported means for measures 03 and 01 in Table 3.2. 3 As mentioned in Chapter I, the primary criterion for inclusion was that a university had awarded at least 5 doctorates in biochemistry during the FY1976-78 period. 35

Biochemistry programs at the other 12 institutions have not been included in the evaluations in this discipline, since in each case the study coordinator either indicated that the institution did not at that time have a research-doctorate program in biochemistry or failed to provide the information requested by the committee. Before examining individual program results presented in Table 3.1, the reader is urged to refer to Chapter II, in which each of the 16 measures used in the assessment is discussed. Summary statistics de- scribing every measure are given in Table 3.2. For nine of the mea- sures, data are reported for at least 115 of the 139 biochemistry pro- grams. For measures 04-07, which pertain to characteristics of the program graduates, data are presented for only approximately two-thirds of the programs; the other third had too few graduates on which to base statistics.4 For measure 12, a composite index of the size of a university library, data are available for 88 programs; for measure 14, the total university expenditures for research in the biological sci- ences, data are available for 104 programs. The programs not evaluated on measures 12 and 14 are typically smaller--in terms of faculty size and graduate student enrollment--than other biochemistry programs. Were data on these two measures available for all 139 programs, it is likely that their reported means would be appreciably lower (and that some of the correlations of these measures with others would be higher). With regard to measure 10, the rated change in program qual- ity, results were not reported for programs with fewer than 15 ratings on the survey item. Intercorrelations among the 16 measures (Pearson product-moment 4As mentioned in Chapter II, data for measures 04-07 are not reported if they are based on the survey responses of fewer than 10 FY1975-79 program graduates.

37 coefficients) are given in Table 3.3. Of particular note are the high positive correlations of the reputational survey ratings (08,-09) with measures of publication records (15, 16) and with measure 04--the frac- tion of program graduates who had had national fellowship or training grant suppport. Figure 3.1 illustrates the relation between the mean rating of the scholarly quality of faculty (measure 08) and the number of faculty members (measure 01) for each of 138 programs in biochemis- try. Figure 3.2 plots the mean rating of program effectiveness (mea- sure 09) against the total number of FY1976-80 program graduates (mea- sure 021. Although in both figures there is a significant positive correlation between program size and reputational rating, it is quite apparent that some of the smaller programs received high mean ratings and that some of the larger programs received low mean ratings. Table 3.4 describes the 234 faculty members who participated in the evaluation of biochemistry programs. These individuals constituted 56 percent of those asked to respond to the survey in this discipline and 9 percent of the faculty population in the 138 research-doctorate pro- grams being evaluated.S Nearly three-fourths of the survey partici- pants had earned their highest degree prior to 1970, and half held the rank of full professor. One exception should be noted with regard to the survey evaluations in biochemistry. In the program listing on the survey form, New Mex- ico State University at Las Cruces was identified as being located in Alamogordo, where there is another branch of the same university system not offering the research doctorate. Since a large majority of faculty evaluators indicated that they were unfamiliar with this program, and it is quite possible that some of them were misled by the inaccurate description of this institution, the committee has decided not to re- port the survey results for this program. To assist the reader in interpreting results of the survey evalua- tions, estimated standard errors have been computed for mean ratings of the scholarly quality of faculty in 138 biochemistry programs (and are given in Table 3.11. For each program the mean rating and an as- sociated "confidence interval" of 1.5 standard errors are illustrated in Figure 3.3 (listed in order of highest to lowest mean rating). In comparing two programs, if their confidence intervals do not overlap, one may conclude that there is a significant difference in their mean ratings at a .05 level of significance.6 =--~ 'A ~ ~ ~ ~^ :' :~ O'er till ~11 ~ ~ LOBULE `~ 1;> "REV apparent that one should have somewhat more confidence in the accuracy of the mean ratings of higher-rated programs than lower-rated programs. This generalization results primarily from the fact that evaluators are not as likely to be familiar with the less prestigious programs, and consequently the mean ratings of these programs are usually based on fewer survey responses. 5See Table 2.3 in Chapter II. 6 See pp. 31-33 for a discussion of the interpretation of mean ratings and associated confidence intervals.
