In the 2015 Taulbee report published in the May 2016 CRN, there were errors in the teaching load values presented in Table Prof1. Of particular import, the median values (the best comparison of typical teaching loads) for US CS Private, US CE, and US Information groups in the original report were higher than they should have been. Means also differ. Below is a corrected version of this table.
|Table Prof1. Official Teaching Load of Tenured and Tenure-Track Faculty (Updated 7/31/17)|
|Official Teaching Load*||Academic Calendar|
|Department Type||# Dept||Minimum||Mean||Median||Maximum||# Dept||Semester||Quarter||Other|
|US CS Public||97||2||3.2||3||9||100||90||10||0|
|US CS Private||32||1||2.7||2||6||34||27||7||0|
* Teaching load is given for a semester calendar. Loads for a quarter system were multiplied by 2/3. To convert back to quarter-system equivalent, multiply these values by 1.5.
The teaching load questions are asked with the other Department Profiles questions every three years and will be asked next in fall 2018.
