Austin Community College LRS Annual Professional Evaluation Procedures.
Austin Community Coll., TX.
The Learning Resource Center (LRS) at Austin Community College, in Texas, has developed professional evaluation guidelines and procedures to effectively assess and evaluate LRS personnel. The evaluation plan provides general guidelines and specific evaluation procedures and is divided into three major components. The first component is related to reviewing job responsibilities, with guidelines including the need for personnel to be aware of job descriptions and responsibilities, for responsibilities to be congruent with college objectives, and for evaluators to recognize the possibility that job responsibilities may change. Procedures for reviewing responsibilities include providing personnel with copies of job descriptions, annual lists of responsibilities completed by supervisors and employees, and adjustments to responsibilities if necessary. The second component is related to setting goals and objectives, which should be broad, achievable, and measurable; be linked to the mission of the LRS; and allow personnel to choose methods for accomplishing them. Procedures include annual self-evaluations by personnel and campus meetings of personnel to share goals. The final component is related to actual evaluation, which should be based on responsibilities and goals and objectives; be ongoing, collaborative, and objective; acknowledge good performance, as well as making recommendations for improvement; and encourage innovation. Procedures include annual evaluation surveys, interviews with personnel, and mid-year reviews. Appendixes include an evaluation timeline and evaluation instruments for different categories of LRS employees. (TGI)
