Presidential Evaluation.
Williams, Ruthann E.
The interest in and need for presidential evaluation has arisen from the increased size and complexity of institutions, the call for accountability, the increasing difficulty of the presidential task, and the shift in roles and responsibilities of the presidency. Presidential evaluation provides an institution with the opportunity to delineate carefully the roles, responsibilities, and expectations for its chief executive officer, and allows the president to clarify his/her own goals. Criteria for evaluation should include the areas of leadership, academic planning and internal administration, decision-making and problem-solving, institutional representation, and personal qualities. Possible evaluation methods include the use of an internal or external "fact-finder," ad-hoc committees, self-assessment, or an internal feedback system. Rating scales, developed from agreed upon criteria, should be used. The president's self-assessment can use the same scales, or can take a narrative form which includes his goals, administrative style, major issues confronting the institution, and strategies for goal achievement. A bibliography is appended. (RT)
