An Approach to Annual Assessment and Evaluation of University Faculty.
Huberty, Carl J.
An approach used to determine some university faculty annual raises is described. Faculty assessment information is obtained by describing the calendar year activities of each faculty member in files dedicated to achievements, information related to instruction, and professional writings. Tabular summaries made from this information are also described. One summary pertains to instruction information, and the other describes research involvement and other professional activities. An annual evaluation procedure using these summaries is carried out by a Faculty Review Team and the Department Head. The method used to determine faculty raise allocations based on the evaluation ratings is presented, and difficulties and limitations of the approach are described. The use of a committee to serve as a review team gives the process more credibility, but the evaluation process remains difficult. (Contains 7 tables and 12 references.) (SLD)
