Teaching

To document teaching, a summary chart (see Table 2), as is requested of untenured Faculty and Faculty who apply for promotion to Professor, is to be submitted.  Further, evaluation of teaching performance which includes all student comments from each SSI— typed summaries of each question by each course, placed after each two-page SSI summary, are also to be submitted; individual SSIs are not to be included.

If desired, but within one single-spaced page, information from other sources of evaluation of teaching, such as mentoring graduate students and comments about efforts at improvement, innovation, and class preparation may supplement the chart and typed summaries.

Table 2: Summary Table for Teaching

 

A summary chart of teaching scores which includes every course taught, grouped by semester, should be created; sections of the same class are not to be combined. Summary Question 19, “Overall, how would you rate your learning experience in this course?” (or its current equivalent) is to be used, including both numbers of students and the percentage within each category, as well as both the individual mean and college mean* (not included here because this is a fabricated example and so there is no way to know that this might be). For example:

Name of course

Excellent

Very Good

Good

Fair

Poor

Omitted

Section Mean
