There has been serious disagreement regarding how best to objectively evaluate the research competence of university teachers to determine their suitability for promotion from one level to another. Different approaches are adopted by Nigerian Universities to ensure comparability of output of different people being considered for advancement. Doubt has been raised among teachers regarding the adequacy and objectivity of the criteria adopted in the evaluation process. A system of assigning points to every aspect of job output including research has been designed in the University of Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria and it is being tested for adoption in evaluating employees' output. Issues and questions have been raised about the adequacy of the system for evaluation purpose. This paper presents the point system of evaluation and clarifies some issues that have been raised about the system. (Contains 5 tables.)
