v:l Story Programs In this chapter 102 research-doctorate programs in history are as- sessed. These programs, according to the information supplied by their universities, have accounted for 3,877 doctoral degrees awarded during the FY1976-80 period--approximately 89 percent of the aggregate number of history doctorates earned from U.S. universities in this five-year span. On the average, 51 full-time and part-time students intending to earn doctorates were enrolled in a program in December 1980, with an average faculty size of 28 members.2 Two programs were initiated since 1970, and no two programs are located in the same university. In addi- tion to the 102 institutions represented in this discipline, another 6 were initially identified as meeting the criteria3 for inclusion in the assessment: University of New Mexico--Albuquerque University of North Dakota--Grand Forks Yeshiva University Graduate Theological Union--California Illinois State University--Normal Saint John's University The last three institutions chose not to participate in the assessment in any discipline. History programs at the other three 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 history or failed to provide the information requested by the committee. data from the NRC's Survey of Earned Doctorates indicate that 4,341 research doctorates in history were awarded by U.S. universities be- tween FY1976 and FY1980. 2 See the reported means for measures 03 and 01 in Table 6.2. 3As mentioned in Chapter I, the primary criterion for inclusion was that a university had awarded at least 11 doctorates in history during the FY1976-78 period. 87

88 Before examining individual program results presented in Table 6.1, 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 6.2. For 13 of the measures, data are reported for at least 98 of the 102 history programs. For measure 12, a composite index of the size of a university library, data are available for 75 programs. The programs not evaluated on this measure are typically smaller--in terms of faculty size and graduate student enrollment--than other history programs. Were data on measure 12 available for all 102 programs, it is likely that their reported mean would be appreciably lower (and that some of the correlations of this measure with others would be higher). As mentioned in Chapter II, data on the fraction of program faculty with research grants from the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration, the National Institutes of Health, or the National Science Foundation (measure 13) and data on the total university expenditures for research (measure 14) are not presented for programs in history. Intercorrelations among the 14 measures (Pearson product-moment coefficients) are given in Table 6.3. Of particular note are the high positive correlations of the measures of program size {01, 02, and 03) with the total published articles by program faculty (17) and the repu- tational survey ratings (08, 09~. Also of interest are the high posi- tive correlations of university library size {12) with reputational survey ratings (08 and 09~. Figure 6.1 illustrates the relation be- tween the mean rating of the scholarly quality of faculty (measure 08) and the number of faculty members (measure 01) for each of 102 programs in history. Figure 6.2 plots the mean rating of program effectiveness (measure 09) against the total number of FY1976-80 program graduates (measure 02~. 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 6.4 describes the 166 faculty members who participated in the evaluation of history programs. These individuals constituted 54 per- cent of those asked to respond to the survey in this discipline and 6 percent of the faculty population in the 102 research-doctorate pro- grams being evaluated.4 More than two-thirds of the survey partici- pants had earned their highest degree prior to 1970, and a majority held the rank of full professor. 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 102 history programs (and are given in Table 6.1~. For each program the mean rating and an associ- ated "confidence interval" of 1.5 standard errors are illustrated in Figure 6.3 (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 4 See Table 2~3 in Chapter I T

89 ratings at a .05 level of significance.5 From this figure it is also 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. 5 See pp. 30-32 for a discussion of the interpretation of mean ratings and associated confidence intervals.
