Understanding how the columns for each table are calculated is the first step to updating and correcting any data in your Faculty Success system. Many details may also be reviewed by downloading the report template from the Reports page.

We recommend using this article and the related AACSB: Required Fields by Table article to assist in understanding how the activities entered in Faculty Success impact the tables. The criteria for user inclusion is also outlined in the aforementioned article.

TABLE 3-1

Faculty Portfolio

Faculty Members Name

The full name of the faculty member as entered in Personal and Contact Information. 

Specialty Field

The AACSB Specialty assigned in the Yearly Data record overlapping the report end date.

Highest Degree, Year Earned

The degree designated as the Highest Degree Earned from Education/Degrees.

Faculty Sufficiency Related to Teaching

Only 1 of the 2 columns will contain data for each Faculty based on the AACSB Sufficiency within Yearly Data. Faculty's productivity is measured by multiplying the number of official enrollments and the number of credit hours from Scheduled Teaching.

Normal Professional Responsibilities

A list of the selected responsibilities from AACSB Normal Professional Responsibility in Yearly Data.

Faculty Qualifications With Respect to Percent of Time Devoted to Mission

The percentage of time devoted to the mission is measured by taking the mean of the faculty's AACSB Percent of Time Dedicated to the School's Mission within Yearly Data for all Yearly Data records included in the report date range. The resulting number will populate in the appropriate column based on the AACSB Qualification entered for the faculty on Yearly Data.

Brief Description of Basis for Qualification

The brief description for basis of qualification from Yearly Data.

Total of Faculty Qualifications With Respect to Percent of Time Devoted to Mission

The total percentage of time devoted to mission is calculated by taking the sum of the column and dividing it by the sum of each column. 

Total of Faculty Sufficiency Related to Teaching

The total is calculated by the sum of the column. 

TABLE 3-2

The percentage of teaching by qualification is calculated by multiplying the number of official enrollments to the number of credit hours from Scheduled Teaching.

Scholarly Academic (SA) %

Practice Academic (PA) %

Scholarly Practitioner (SP) %

Total %

The percentage of teaching by qualifications totaled by row.

TABLE 8-1

The counts for Intellectual Contributions will reflect division of credit. If multiple faculty collaborated on an intellectual Contribution, the credit will be divided across all individuals included in the report. For example, a journal article with 3 authors from the institution who are all represented in the report will be displayed as a ".33" for each author. Consult the AACSB Interpretive Guidance resource for more information on division of credit.

Both Total columns for this report are expected to be identical counts.

Types of Intellectual Contributions

Peer-reviewed journal articles

Accepted or Published peer-reviewed Journal Articles that have not been editorially reviewed.

Percent of Participating Faculty Producing ICs

The percent of participating faculty producing intellectual contributions is measured by dividing the number of faculty whose AACSB sufficiency in their Yearly data is "Participating" and who have made Intellectual Contributions by the number of faculty whose sufficiency is "Participating."

Percent of total Full Time Equivalent (FTE) faculty producing ICs

The percent of FTE faculty producing intellectual contributions can be measured by adding the mean of the total FTE percentage for all users and dividing it by the total number of users who have produced intellectual contributions.
