Evaluation and Promotion

As noted in the Guidelines for Evaluation of Teaching and this email from the Provost, Student Evaluations of Teaching (SET) scores provide a limited view of instructor effectiveness in the classroom. For example, SET scores do not necessarily capture instructors' implementation of innovative pedagogy or their commitment to professional development. In order to gain a holistic view of teaching, evaluation should be grounded in multiple forms of data, such as observations by faculty colleagues, syllabus review, and students' growth over time in their assignments and assessments.
