Mutual Benefit Evaluation of Faculty and Administrators in Higher Education.
Genova, William J.; And Others
This is a practical guide for those academic communities that are developing programs to evaluate faculty and administrators. The guide relates principles of organizational development to tested measurement techniques. A group charged with faculty or administrator evaluation can follow a step-by-step process to develop and carry out a plan tailored to the specific needs of its institution. The guide contains all necessary information for such a plan, including a review of relevant current research in evaluation, summaries of exemplary evaluation practice, and 29 rating scales garnered from programs across the country. There are also extensive bibliographies. In the course of their investigations, the authors found very few systematic programs for administrator evaluation in higher education, beyond uncritical adoption of procedures used in other sectors, like management by objectives. Since the practice is so sparse, this guide describes an avowedly experimental approach to administrator evaluation, an approach that should also serve as an institutional planning process. Administrators' efforts to form and attain goals are assessed in the several contexts of institutional stages of development and the prevailing patterns of authority and decision-making. (Editor/MSE)
