Faculty Evaluation: Process and Procedure.
Saunders, Dorcas S.
A two-year project was undertaken at Shelby State Community College to revise the school's faculty annual evaluation system. The first step in the development of the system was the identification and definition of five teacher roles; i.e., instruction, service to the college, professional growth, professional activities within the faculty member's area of expertise, and community or public service activities. The second step was the identification of sources of information on instructor performance in each of the roles, including student, peer, self, and supervisor evaluations. The third step was the determination of the weight or value to be placed on the information provided by each of the sources. After determining the kind of information to be gathered from each source, the final step was the development of forms, procedures, and protocol. The revised evaluation system, which is intended to support promotion and tenure considerations and to determine the need for faculty development, consists of four stages: (1) the determination by the faculty member and his/her supervisor of the emphasis he/she will place on each of the five roles; (2) the fulfillment of the agreed upon roles and responsibilities; (3) the collection by the faculty member of the necessary documents for evaluation; and (4) the evaluation itself. The bulk of this document is composed of samples of the various forms used in the evaluation process. (KL)
