Shoben, Edward Joseph, Jr.
It seems reasonably clear that we don't evaluate much more than half as well as we know how, and it is improbable that pure logic will significantly move us toward greater effectiveness. Three ideas supporting this premise are: (1) the reward system or low premium on innovation and high premium on outside lecturing, consulting work and off campus activities, (2) the process of recruitment and socialization for professorial careers has been remarkable intense and narrow, and (3) the large number of students and the great diversity of them. These major dilemmas press those concerned with student personnel work in unfamiliar and uncomfortable directions. They demand that student personnel workers identify the appropriate people and form coalitions of students, faculty, and administrative officers who can exercise educational influence on our campuses and that they strongly support and help to make more telling and sophisticated those efforts to evaluate courses and instructors. Other needed directions are given. (Author/KJ)
