Factors Influencing Professorial Assessment.
Scott, Craig S.; And Others
The Oregon State System of Higher Education recently completed a 3-year study entitled Faculty Teaching: Models for Assessment of Quality. Over 400 teaching and administrative faculty selected on a random or stratified basis answered the following questions: (1) What factors are considered in the assessment of faculty performance? (2) What evidence is utilized in professorial assessment processes? (3) What weights are assigned by faculty to factors considered relevant to teaching, scholarship, and service when a decision is pending regarding a faculty member's promotion or tenure status? (4) What factors should be influential in promotion or tenure decisions? Faculty perceptions of 34 commonly used indicators provided insights into: gaps between policy pronouncements and actual practice, differences between colleges and universities, differences between academic disciplines, and measurement problems regarding output indicators.
