Factors That Impact the Evaluation of Teacher Evaluation of Teacher Effectiveness for Reappointment, Tenure and Promotion
Ngoh, Nelson
Journal for the Advancement of Educational Research International, v12 n1 p15-24 Fall 2018
Institutions of learning hire faculty to teach and carry out certain contractual duties. The onus rests on the institution to retain those who are effectively carrying out the job for which they were appointed and to replace those who are not meeting up with the required assignments. The problem now becomes that of choosing the most appropriate instruments and the best qualified personnel to help evaluate these faculty in order to make the most informed decisions in this respect. This author chose some universities and closely examined the instruments used for this purpose as well as the personnel who are involved in determining the effectiveness of the teachers. The results revealed that some of the questions asked in the Faculty Evaluation Forms were ambiguous and therefore not valid for that purpose. Some of the personnel involved in this process of evaluation were not adequately qualified to determine the right faculty for reappointment, tenure and promotion. The article concludes with some recommendations to ameliorate and improve the validity and reliability of the evaluation.
