Faculty Assignment Classification System.
Whatcom Community Coll., Ferndale, WA.
This document outlines the point-based faculty assignment classification system in effect at Whatcom Community College (Washington). The purpose of the point system is to provide an equitable and flexible means of compensating faculty members based on a system of assigning quantitative values to tasks. Teaching, which includes classroom instruction, preparation, student evaluation, professional growth, and informal contact with students, is used as the base activity for the point system. A value of one point is assigned to 10 contact hours before a group of students. The assumption is that two hours away from the group of students is required for each contact hour. Counselling and library work are equated to teaching, and a list of activities called "other contracted assignments" are also equated to teaching by assigning point values to them. Values for research, curriculum development, committee work, travel, conference attendance, peer evaluation, and other faculty duties are enumerated. (Author/MJK)
