The Evaluation of Administrators and Faculty Members--or Evaluating the "Boss" and Each Other.
Razor, Jack E.
Evaluation of administrators and faculty is examined, including the identification of evaluation instruments and clarification of procedures. After a brief discussion of the rationale for evaluation and the need for acting on the outcomes of the evaluation, the process of evaluating the administrator is considered. The criteria of organizational achievement and management are selected as indicators of administrative performance. Two approaches to examining administrators, the task approach and the process approach, are explored. Steps in the process are discussed and characteristics of a good administrator are summarized. Faculty evaluation is reviewed next. It is explained that the nature and components of the assessment instruments will vary with the purpose of the evaluation, and that the validity of the evaluation is no better than the validity and power of each of its components. Problems with student evaluations of teacher performance are posed and it is concluded that student evaluations should be considered as only one measure in the evaluation of the faculty. (PHR)
