If, however, the quality of instruction is evaluated only when salaries are set or promotions are at stake, assessment can be detrimental to teaching.

Improving teaching requires settings where individuals can freely and openly review their teaching practices, admit weaknesses, and experiment with new, unfamiliar approaches.

When promotion, tenure, and salary are at issue, the stakes in evaluating teaching are high and teachers will be reluctant to admit weaknesses or take risks. Evaluations intended to reward teaching "summative assessments" must be kept separate from evaluations designed to improve teaching "formative assessments". The term assessment has in many institutions come to refer to evaluation of programs as well as of individual faculty members. Governmental bodies and granting agencies have increasingly demanded program assessments that measure student learning.

Program assessments should build on the same qualitative, multiple measures used to evaluate individual teachers. Chairs and faculty members should play a leading role in designing and conducting such assessments so that the results will reflect their programs accurately and comprehensively. Departments can usefully address the program-wide assessment of student achievement by developing statements of purpose and then creating appropriate measures to determine how well these objectives are being met.

Academic Scholarship Assessment Day

The primary purpose of program assessment should be for the faculty to discover how the department's programs can be strengthened and student learning enhanced. Performance review for tenure, promotion, or salary increases should include comprehensive, qualitative evidence about teaching, but evaluations of teaching should not be limited to occasions when rewards are at stake.

Faculty members should assemble portfolios to represent their work as teachers. In addition to including the traditional student evaluations, portfolios may contain records of peer visits to classrooms, syllabi, course development plans, and representative student work. Individual faculty members should be encouraged to write periodic self-evaluations. Departments should develop coherent programs to train graduate students who have teaching assignments and to improve teaching at all levels, including tenured and untenured and adjunct ranks.

Administrators should provide resources to support these programs as generously as possible.

Departments should encourage faculty members to visit one another's classes. Some of these visits should be made for formative purposes and thus discussed only by the teachers involved.

Special order items

In preparing evaluation forms, departments should emphasize qualitative measures and discursive formats, which represent the complexity and diversity of good teaching. Students need to have teachers who serve as models for learning—who are, in effect, lifelong students. Because teaching and scholarly activity are mutually reinforcing, departments and institutions should create conditions that encourage all faculty members to engage in intellectual inquiry. Scholarship should be a criterion for promotion and tenure in institutions of higher education.

Different departments will have different expectations about the kinds of scholarly activities that best serve their missions and fit their institution's profiles. Publication need not be the only or even the most important measure of a faculty member's accomplishments. In evaluations of scholarship, different kinds of activities and products should be given credit. Suitable measures of excellence should be developed for nontraditional as well as for traditional forms of scholarship.

Scholarship—the effort to advance knowledge—is a distinguishing feature of higher education.
