Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education: Faculty Inventory. Institutional Inventory.
Chickering, Arthur W.; And Others
These inventories are designed to help faculty members, departments, colleges, and universities examine individual behaviors and institutional policies and practices for their consistency with seven principles for good practice in undergraduate education. The Faculty Inventory has seven sections, one for each principle: student-faculty contact, cooperation among students, active learning, prompt feedback, time on task, high expectations, and diverse talents and ways of learning. In each section, 10 statements are presented for rating on a five-point Likert scale. The questions address activities consistent with good educational practice and help respondents identify activities they might wish to pursue. The Institutional Inventory has six sections: climate, academic practices, curriculum, faculty, academic and student support services, and facilities. The 11 statements to be rated in each section address policies, practices, institutional norms, and expectations that support good practice. The inventories are designed to be used as a basis for diagnosis, rather than as a basis for judgment about performance, summative evaluation, or self-justification. (JDD)
