Two Cheers for Peer Review: Problems of Definition, Interpretation, and Appropriate Function.
Strenski, Ellen
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v6 n3 p31-49 1995
Discusses problems with summative peer evaluation of college teaching, looking at conflicting interests and mixed metaphors of faculty evaluation that obscure its process and principles. Issues related to five kinds of evaluation (judging, critiquing, assessing, appraising, rating) are examined. Argues that peers can contribute to faculty evaluation most effectively in two ways: interpreting colleagues' teaching portfolios and students' testimony. (Author/MSE)
