Evaluation of College and University Top Brass: The State of the Art, Status Report of AASCU Member Institutions.
Surwill, Benedict J.; Heywood, Stanley J.
Chief administrators of 218 institutions throughout the U.S. and Guam were surveyed regarding the evaluation of college and university administrators. The need for administrative evaluation in higher education was addressed, along with the purposes of and processes for such evaluation. Recommendations and cautions are offered. If evaluation is to be used as a positive means of bringing about improvement of administrative action, the authors urge that the results of the evaluation should be treated in an organized, agreed-upon, confidential nature. The use of a review committee is recommended as the most favorable method for evaluating each echelon of the administrative hierarchy. A review committee composed of selective members representing all constituences served by the administrator being evaluated appears to offer the most valid and reliable machinery for carrying out this complex task.
