Faculty Evaluation in the Division of HPERD at the University of Georgia.
Brassie, P. Stanley
A faculty evaluation system at the University of Georgia identifies and differentiates meritorious performance of individual faculty members. The evaluation system, which is used for faculty in the Division of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (HPERD), incorporates the use of a job description, an annual report of activity, and an evaluation of the performance of that activity in light of the job description. At the beginning of each year, a faculty member and the department head meet to formulate the faculty member's job description for that calendar year. Expectations are discussed and agreed upon in the categories of instruction, research/scholarly activity, and service. At the end of the calendar year, each faculty member submits to the department head an annual report which covers all professional activities accomplished under the aforementioned categories. The Merit Service Committee, elected by the faculty, reviews each report in light of the job description. They then rate the teacher according to an already established numerical rating system. Both the department head and HPERD division head also rate each individual. There are avenues for appeal. The HPERD division head, after receiving salary budgets for the next fiscal year, then assigns a percentage salary increase to each merit rating. Multiple evaluation forms are appended. (JM)
