A Faculty Assesses Its Teaching. A Survey of the UCLA Faculty.
Trent, James W.; Rose, Clare
In answer to an urgent request for improved methods for evaluation and documentation of teaching performance by the president of the University of California, a Task Force on Evaluation of Teaching was appointed on the U.C.L.A. campus. From the beginning, the Task Force considered the faculty's opinions, regarding the evaluation of teaching to be a major reference for its recommendations. Consequently, members of the Task Force designed a survey questionnaire to elicit faculty opinion on the nature of evaluation of teaching, their perceptions of important criteria for such evaluation, the extent to which they were undertaking self-evaluation of their teaching, the methods they were using for this evaluation, and their recommendations for evaluation of teaching for the campus at large. The results of the survey questionnaire, returned by only 11 percent of the faculty, are included in this report. (HS)
