Administrators' Perceptions of the Performance Appraisal Interview.
McDowell, Earl E.
This study focused on department heads'/ chairs' perceptions of the appraisal interview (a face-to-face interpersonal communication event), assessment of the faculty member's role in the appraisal interview, and assessment of the academic administrator's role in the appraisal interview. The results indicate that approximately 20% of respondents were satisfied with their performance during the appraisal interview, but 80% felt their appraisals were reliable and valid. Department heads/chairs are most likely to use the Problem Solving method and least likely to use the Management by Objective method. Other results are discussed in the paper.
