College Nine and Ten Provost- Delegation of Authority

               RE: Online Instructor Evaluations in the 2012-13 Academic Personnel Review Process

Dear Colleagues:

I write on behalf of CP/EVC Galloway and CAP Chair Ravelo to convey an update regarding their recent decision on the submission of online evaluations of instructors.

For the 2012-13 review cycle, departments that used online evaluations of instructors need only submit with academic review files the summary sheets (.pdf) from eCommons for 2011-12 courses. However, departments must also download and save the Excel spreadsheet from eCommons for each instructor/course so that they are available should campus reviewers request additional information on teaching.

The Academic Personnel Office (APO) will continue to assist the campus to find a permanent solution to the issues of archiving and providing online instructor evaluations in a format that is usable for campus reviewers. I understand that Faculty Instructional Technology Center (FITC) will be purging eCommons today at noon. If you need assistance in downloading the summary (.pdf) and Excel spreadsheet from eCommons, please contact FITC at 459-5506.

Thank you for your assistance.

Best regards,

Pamela G. Peterson
Assistant Vice Chancellor Academic Personnel
