EVALUATION AND SELECTION IN THE 1966-67 ACADEMIC ADMINISTRATION INTERNSHIP PROGRAM.
CREAGER, JOHN A.
PROCEDURES USED IN THE 2D YEAR TO SELECT FELLOWS IN ACADEMIC ADMINISTRATION FOR A PROGRAM INITIATED BY THE AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EDUCATION WERE SIMILAR TO THOSE USED IN THE PROGRAM'S 1ST YEAR. THE PROCEDURES FOLLOWED THIS SEQUENCE--(1) PRESIDENTS OF MEMBER INSTITUTIONS NOMINATED PERSONS OF OUTSTANDING ADMINISTRATIVE PROMISE, (2) EACH INTERESTED NOMINEE SUBMITTED A DOSSIER FOR EVALUATION BY FOUR-MAN TEAMS COMPOSED OF COUNCIL MEMBERS, AND (3) TWO 30-MINUTE INTERVIEWS WERE CONDUCTED AT SIX REGIONAL CENTERS BY THREE-MAN TEAMS COMPOSED OF COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY PRESIDENTS. THE DATA REVEALED (1) SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES EXISTED BETWEEN NOMINATING INSTITUTIONS AND THE TOTAL 1,013 ACE MEMBER INSTITUTIONS, (2) PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS RESPONDED TO NOMINATION INVITATIONS ABOUT ONE-HALF AS OFTEN AS THE TOTAL ACE MEMBERSHIP, AND (3) LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES WERE ALSO SIGNIFICANTLY UNDERREPRESENTED, AND UNIVERSITIES AND TEACHERS' COLLEGES WERE OVERREPRESENTED. COMPARISONS MADE BETWEEN WINNERS AND NONWINNERS REVEALED THAT WINNERS WERE MORE LIKELY TO HOLD THE DOCTORAL DEGREE, TO HAVE HIGH SALARIES, AND TO HAVE A NUMBER OF PUBLICATIONS. A CONTROL GROUP COMPOSED OF TWO NOMINEE-CHOSEN COLLEAGUES WHO WERE NOT INTERESTED IN ACADEMIC ADMINISTRATION PERMITTED NOMINEE AND CONTROL GROUP COMPARISON. THE CONTROL GROUP CONSISTED ALMOST ENTIRELY OF FACULTY MEMBERS WHILE A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE NOMINEE GROUP HELD POSITIONS OF ACADEMIC ADMINISTRATION. THE INITIAL PROCESS OF SELECTIVITY AND PRESCREENING BY THE NOMINATING PRESIDENTS OF MEMBER INSTITUTIONS, THE PROCESS OF DOSSIER SCREENING ON THE BASIS OF INTELLIGENCE, ACADEMIC AND PUBLISHING ACHIEVEMENT, AND THE FINAL INTERVIEW EVALUATION WERE FOUND TO BE CONSISTENT WITH THE STATED AIMS OF THE PROGRAM.
