Abstract:

A quantitative procedure was developed for assessing the scholarly, teaching and service accomplishments of faculty members who are being reviewed for promotion and tenure. A national survey was conducted with 109 university and colleges soliciting administrator’s judgments for their assessments of their colleagues’ performance and productivity. The administrators were asked to respond to a paired-comparison questionnaire consisting of eleven faculty performance criteria, indicating in each of the 55 possible pairs which was more important as an indicator of achievement. The Academic Assessment Index (AAI) was then developed from a statistical analysis of these results. It is suggested that this AAI may provide an important perspective on the difficult issue of assessing faculty performance. That perspective can be of value not only to administrators who must make those judgments, but also to those pursuing advanced degrees in preparation for a career in higher education and for newly hired faculty members who need to understand how their teaching, scholarly performance and service activities will be judged by senior colleagues and administrators as they seek career advancement.
