This paper discusses resolution three passed in 1974 by the Conference on College Composition and Communication at Anaheim, which states,"...all retention and tenure decisions...be securely based on a thorough, balanced, and professional evaluation of teaching competence..." A system developed by the author which approaches the spirit of this resolution is described and recommended for college teachers of English, especially those teaching composition courses for students in other disciplines. The system involves inviting teachers of humanities from outside one's own department to evaluate one's students; inviting people from within the student's profession to evaluate; inviting the general public to see one's students, both in person and on a video-tape television program; and inviting people from the humanities profession and from the student's profession to submit a confidential evaluation of one's teaching competence to one's department chairperson.
