Student to Teacher Ratio
This metric shows how many students are enrolled within an institution, year group or class per teacher. A high student to teacher ratio is often seen in a negative light, due to the implication that students will receive less care and attention, and that members of faculty will be overstretched. Conversely a low student to teacher ratio can be worn as a badge of honour and seen as a marketable selling point.
Making the KPI
To create this KPI you will need to know:
- The number of students enrolled in the institution, year group, class or subject
- The number of faculty within the institution, year group, class or subject
Once you have the necessary ingredients at your disposal, you can create Student to Teacher ratio by dividing the number of students by the number of faculty.
