A "System" for Departmental Evaluation for Promotion Tenure and Assignments.
Nadeau, Gilles G.
A system with ten components or stages for college faculty promotion, tenure, or assignment is presented as an aid to establishing criteria, defining purposes, and helping college departments meet the demands of accountability. The components are as follows: (1) at the start of the year, the department defines its needs, purposes, and priorities; (2) the department commits itself to a visible evaluation system; (3) the department defines performance criteria and provides institutional back-up services; (4) clear objectives are defined for all teaching activities; (5) detailed course syllabi are prepared; (6) at year end, each faculty presents a self evaluation record; (7) for the next year agreements are made on duties, responsibilities, and areas for improvement; (8) confidential longitudinal data are compiled; (9) instructional development and support services are planned; and (10) a specified committee review procedure is carried out for career decisions. A model for a course syllabus and strategies for staff development are presented in outline form. (Author/CTM)
