Formative peer review of teaching: Attitudes of faculty at liberal arts colleges toward colleague assessment
Journal of Personnel Evaluation in Education
Nearly all students of faculty evaluation agree that peer review should be part of a comprehensive program of faculty assessment. Faculty are particularly well qualified to critique their colleagues' teaching when the objective is to improve quality of instruction because they are in a position to assess several aspects of teaching better than students, academic administrators, and other constituencies of the academic community. Large proportions of faculty in this study indicated they would take part in four methods of formative peer review-classroom observation, videotaping of classes, evaluation of course materials, and assessment of their evaluation of the academic work of students-and they provide important information on factors that might detract from their participation, on conditions that might enhance the process, and on the benefits they and their students, colleagues, and institutions might receive as a result of their participation. © 2000 Kluwer Academic Publishers, Boston.
