Information and articles on faculty advising are presented in this newsletter issue. The first article identifies specific consultation services on academic advising, as well as sources of information on academic advising. Next, in "Measuring Faculty Advisor Effectiveness," Stephen C. Brock describes the Cooperative Project on Advising, which was formed to develop a comprehensive service for colleges and universities to assist them with the improvement of faculty advising of students. The short-range goal of the project was to develop an advisee rating form. Results of pilot-testing the questionnaire for measuring advisor effectiveness are also summarized. In "Faculty Advising: A Part of Faculty Development," Howard C. Kramer identifies nine reasons that advising and faculty development should be linked. It is suggested that a advisor coordinator should be appointed to help advisors. An announcement is included concerning the availability of IDEA Form B, a new version of the IDEA student-rating-of-instruction form with items written at a vocabulary level below that of the standard IDEA questionnaire.
