Abstract

Home economics education adrninistrators' perceptions of factors contributing to research productivity of faculty were analyzed. One hundred and sixty adminis trators responded to the questionnaire. Twenty‐three percent came from public land‐grant institutions, 50 percent from public non‐land‐grant institutions, and 26 percent from private institutions. Logistic regression models were used to analyze the data. Findings of the study showed that a majority of the administrators in all three types of institutions believed that the research productivity level of their faculty was not high. Results also indicated that administrators in the study per ceived faculty morale, faculty development, expertise in writing for publication, and teaching productivity as factors contributing significantly to faculty research productivity. 1989 American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences
