Standards for Evaluating Teaching

Information such as written comments from students, colleagues within and beyond the Department, College, or University administrators shall be considered when available.  Peer reviews and summaries of Student Surveys of Instruction (including all student comments) must be submitted as part of a candidate’s file for reappointment, tenure, and promotion.  Copies of representative syllabi, examinations, and other relevant teaching material should also be available for review.  Documentation related to graduate student, undergraduate student, and post-doctoral student advising should be included in materials provided by a candidate for reappointment, tenure and promotion.

Evaluation of teaching will account for differences in missions and expectations across campuses.  Criteria for the evaluation of teaching are listed in Table 3.
