Metric 9 Notes:
- Teaching Assistant ratios are often reported as students/TAs. To report in this way, UC Davis has historically converted SCH to student FTE by dividing SCH by 15 to include a full course load for a student. However, using a pure ratio of SCH/faculty is a more accurate measure of workload since course units and loads for TAs and faculty vary across academic units.
- TAs include only those who have TA title codes.
- The large change in TA usage in HArCS in 2013-14 is due to a combination of several factors: 1) In 2013-14, some students teaching first and second year language courses were classified as AIs instead of TA, which resulted in fewer TA FTEs for HArCS; 2) With the transition of ESL courses to HArCS in 2013-14, the total denominator of SCH grew, but TA usage in ESL courses is minimal; 3) HArCS has a trend of declining enrollment in large courses, resulting in less TA hiring for large enrollment classes than in the past.
