Faculty Evaluation Procedures in Southern Colleges and Universities.
Boyd, James E.; Schietinger, E. F.
The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) survey of faculty procedures determines the nature and extent of faculty evaluation programs in the South. The president of each college was sent a copy of a questionnaire designed to provide data on existing policies, practices, and criteria for faculty evaluation. One of the most noticable aspects of the survey findings is that the various reasons for faculty evaluation are: (1) a concern for faculty development and improvement; and (2) the need for evaluation of faculty performance to provide information for decisions on tenure, promotion, reappointment, and salary. This polarization of emphasis is associated with institutional types--the more senior the institution, the more frequent the emphasis on performance evaluation; the less senior the institution, the more frequent the emphasis on faculty development.
