An Academic Accomplishment Index For Assessing Faculty Performance
Unformatted Document Text:  12 NOTES 1 This number of returns may seem to represent a very high rate. That is not actually realistic. To each of the 148 institutions, a questionnaire was sent to more than one administrator who could be identified from the institution’s web site. A total of 364 possible contact names were assembled in this manner, and a questionnaire was sent to each. In some cases, a decision appears to have been made by those in some of these institutions to return only a single questionnaire, rather than one from each person contacted. It is difficult, then, to calculate a simple rate of return. The best assessment of this sample, in the judgment of the investigator, is that the questionnaires that were completed and returned represent the voices of 109 administrators in universities across the country who are actively engaged in the type of faculty assessment activities under study.

This number of returns may seem to represent a very high rate. That is not actually realistic. To
each of the 148 institutions, a questionnaire was sent to more than one administrator who could
be identified from the institution’s web site. A total of 364 possible contact names were
assembled in this manner, and a questionnaire was sent to each. In some cases, a decision
appears to have been made by those in some of these institutions to return only a single
questionnaire, rather than one from each person contacted. It is difficult, then, to calculate a
simple rate of return. The best assessment of this sample, in the judgment of the investigator, is
that the questionnaires that were completed and returned represent the voices of 109
administrators in universities across the country who are actively engaged in the type of faculty
assessment activities under study.
