A Discrepancy Evaluation System for University Professors 1973.
This model for evaluating the professional activities of university professors is based on: (1) a systematic process for reporting their activities; and (2) discrepancy evaluation--the comparison of goals and objectives with outcomes. The model assesses a professor's activity in ten categories--teaching; student evaluations; research, creative ability, and scholarship; teaching/research; public service; intra-university activity; extra-university activity; administration; advisee evaluations; and test question evaluations. The evaluation involves 10 basic steps: (1) the professor allocates to the 10 categories the percent of effort he sets as his goal for the coming semester or year; (2) the professor completes the goals and objectives for all categories; (3) the department chairman evaluates the effort allocation and goal intent statements; (4) if discrepancies are noted in step 3, the chairman and professor eliminate or reduce them; (5) the Overall Evaluation Form is completed by the professor and then by his chairman; (6) during the year or semester, the student evaluation form is administered to all the professor's students, the professor submits samples of his tests, and evaluation forms are sent to his advisees; (7) after the year or semester, the professor completes the "description of activities and processes"; (8) the professor then completes the "accomplishment" section, the "products and accomplishments" section of each category, and a self evaluation; (9) the chairman evaluates the discrepancies between goals and accomplishments; (10) on subsequent cycles through the system, the professor tries to reduce discrepancies.
