Evaluations of courses and instructors occur each semester. Evaluation packets with instructions are sent to each site with a student in the class proctoring the evaluation.† The survey instrument will be administered in a manner consistent with student evaluations of regular full-time faculty within the department.† The evaluations are then processed on the main campus. Each department is responsible for sharing findings with their adjunct faculty members. If needed, adjunct faculty may schedule meetings with their department chair to discuss evaluation results and overall performance.
The chair of the department is responsible for providing ongoing assessment of the quality of instruction that adjunct faculty members provide. The chair of the department where the adjunct faculty member is employed is required to make clear (prior to and following employment) both the general expectations of all faculty and the specific duties that go with the appointment.† The chair or a designated supervisor will meet with each new adjunct faculty member to review teaching performance immediately following the conclusion of the first semesterís teaching responsibilities and at least once annually thereafter for any person with ongoing or renewed teaching duties.
In this conference, both the chair and the faculty member review and evaluate the previous semesterís or yearís performance.† Evidence of successful performance will include, but should not be limited to, results of student evaluations conducted in each course taught since any preceding conference.† The student evaluation instrument used to evaluate regular full-time faculty in the department should be used unless the department chair opts to use the standard ECCE form.
Other evidence of teaching performance may include classroom peer review by the chair and review of instructional materials such as texts, syllabi, and tests.† Moreover, the conference will include a review of any additional information provided by the ECCE.
