A Plan for Comprehensive Evaluation of College Teaching.
Smock, Richard; Crooks, Terence
Functions which the evaluation of instruction are analyzed and described. In order to fulfill each of these functions, a 3 X 3 evaluation matrix incorporating three distinct "levels" of evaluation activity and three sources of evaluation information is proposed. Level 1 data will be summary data for use in campus-wide comparisons. Level 2 data will be less general, and more pointed to specific teaching attributes and classroom activities common to particular teaching units. It will be used for comparative purposes within teaching units, but, more importantly, it will serve to identify problem areas in instruction and courses. Level 3 data will be very specific feedback data aimed at pinpointing reasons for problems identified by the Level 2 evaluation, and helping in correction of such problems. The three sources for this evaluation information will be students, faculty members, and administrators. All three will have inputs into each level of the evaluation matrix. (Author/CK)
