The Description and Evaluation of a College Department's Faculty Rating System.
Wood, Peter H.
Faculty in a medium-sized (20 to 30 member) college department were rated as teachers by their students, departmental colleagues, and departmental chairperson. Departmental faculty were also rated as researchers by their departmental colleagues. Several ratings and ranking techniques were employed over a three-year period. Colleague ratings of research and professional service, and student ratings of teaching produced ratings of higher reliability and consistency than did colleague ratings of teaching. Colleague ratings of teaching were more strongly influenced by office location than were ratings of research and service. (Author)
