Improving Faculty Evaluation: A Trial in Strategy. A Report of the SREB Faculty Evaluation Project.
O'Connell, William R., Jr.; Smartt, Steven H.
The outcomes of the Faculty Evaluation Project of the Southern Regional Education Board are reviewed. The project sought to promote principles of comprehensive, systematic faculty evaluation. During an 18-month period, the project worked closely with 30 institutions to assist them in developing such programs. Regional aspects of the project, the process of improving evaluation, and conclusions about outcomes are discussed, and case summaries from 30 institutions are presented. The brief descriptions of institutional experiences in the project include reports from two public community colleges, two state-supported four-year liberal arts colleges, two private master's level institutions, and a comprehensive public university in an urban setting. Examples are from Austin College, Austin Community College, Jackson State Community College, Mary Washington College, Mississippi College, University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, and Virginia Commonwealth University. A report of the project evaluation by Jon F. Wergin, Albert B. Smith, and George E. Rolle is also included. A list of participating institutions, project consultants and resource persons, and references are appended. (SW)
