Kulik, James A.; Ericksen, Stanford C.
Departments, schools, and colleges within the University of Michigan differ widely in the procedures used to evaluate members of their faculties. In some instances student rating forms are used but practices differ as to the kind of information obtained and the weight given to these assessments. Each set of procedures is designed to serve local purposes; this report summarizes research findings that should be considered when interpreting evaluative data already on hand or when mapping out new arrangements for evaluating teachers. Emphasis is placed on student ratings, sources of variation in student ratings, the use of student ratings, ratings by colleagues, ratings by administrators, self-ratings, limitations of performance measures, and student achievement and student ratings.
