Minimum Levels of Performance

To be eligible for a Merit Award within the Fashion School, a faculty member must exceed the minimum threshold performance levels in the area under which the application is being considered.  The following represents the School’s understanding of threshold performance.  A minimum average score of "3" must be achieved in each category in order to receive funding in one of three categories.

All Tenure Track faculty are required to review and score submitted materials for Merit Awards.  For all three categories, the following scale must be used: (use integers only – no decimals)

a score of 5 (excellent)

a score of 4 (very good)

a score of 3 (average)

a score of 2 (fair)

a score of 1 (poor )

a score of 0 (no/inadequate activity or no documentation submitted)
