At California State University, Sacramento a full teaching load is 12
WTU's (weighted teaching units)

Three lecture hours per week = 3 WTU. Three lab hours per week = 2 WTUs

We do have TA's (undergrads and masters students) to help with lab set-up
and to assist during the lab. We also have a staff person who coordinates
the set-up for all of our introductory labs (we can just walk into these
labs and be ready to go). We do not have TAs or graders to assist with
lecture courses. The faculty member is expected to do all of the
instructing in both lab and lecture courses.
