Since this research project was conducted at Angelo State University, it was
necessary to seek approval from the Institutional Review Boards at both Angelo State
University and the University of North Texas. In February 2000, the respective Boards
granted approval for the research project to proceed.
Upon receiving this approval, the questionnaire form (see Appendix B) was sent
to 12 instructors and lecturers (four each in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences).
These individuals were not in the tenure-track path at Angelo State University. This was
under taken to field test the questionnaire and determine if any changes needed to be
made before sending the form to the tenured and tenure-track faculty members. This field
test was completed in early March 2000. The only significant change noted was a
research memo to send more reminders to increase the return rate among tenured and
tenure-track faculty members.
Here’s what’s next.
