The Evaluation of Academic Administrators.
Anderson, G. Lester
Certain principles, assumptions, and caveats are considered in this conference paper that are relevant to the formal evaluation of academic administrators. Academic administration is defined as "leadership and managerial activity associated with teaching, research, educational services such as counseling or placement, and extension activities including continuing education." The rationale for administrator evaluation is examined along with types of evaluation, the authority for evaluation, uses of the evaluation, and the need for a formal system. A model set forth in the author's previously published monograph, "The Evaluation of Academic Administrators: Principles, Process, and Outcomes," is described along with three alternative models. The three alternative models include: (1) the Ad Hoc Evaluation Committee Model in the State University of New York; (2) a Civil Service Review Model used by the California State Colleges and Universities System; and (3) a Management Scorecard Model proposed by Peter Drucker.
