The outcome of the Phase II process shall be selected, and the written report prepared, by the Phase II Review Committee as specified in the Manual.

  7. Criteria for Performance Evaluations of Faculty
  8. Annual and comprehensive evaluations of probationary and tenured faculty, as well as tenure and promotion evaluations, will be based on performance in the areas of teaching and advising, research, and service and outreach, in conformity with the Manual. Levels of effort in each of these areas will be consistent with the individual effort distribution determined by the Department Chair in consultation with the faculty member and appropriate Departmental advisory groups, and in conformity with Section C.2.5.b of the Manual. The range of effort distribution between these areas can vary from year to year for a given individual and can differ significantly between faculty members. The average faculty effort distribution will reflect the Department's mission. It is recognized that many faculty activities fall in more than one category and often cannot be uniquely labeled as teaching, research, outreach, or service. It is the responsibility of the Department Chair to assign individual effort distributions in a way that the overall mission of the Department is achieved.

    The Department Chair is responsible for ensuring that viable mechanisms for the evaluation of teaching and advising, research, and service and outreach are available. As a general rule, it is the responsibility of the faculty member to submit appropriate evidence of activity in research, teaching and advising, and service and outreach to the Department Chair or appropriate committee at the time of the annual evaluations, for the midpoint review of non-tenured faculty, for the purposes of promotion or tenure, and for the comprehensive reviews of tenured faculty. However, the Department Chair may take the initiative to collect additional information as indicators for faculty performance.

    1. Teaching and advising
    2. Teaching and advising are important responsibilities of faculty in the Department of Mathematics. Sources of information used to evaluate classroom teaching may include, but are not limited to: student course surveys; signed peer evaluations/letters; electronic mail messages, or other written comments from current and/or former students (generally not solicited by the faculty member); teaching awards; written reports of classroom evaluations by colleagues. Anonymous letters or comments other than those which appear on course survey forms shall not be used to evaluate teaching, except with the consent of the instructor. The Department Chair shall have access to the written comments in student course surveys for all courses offered by the Department.

      Further information used to evaluate teaching and advising may document effectiveness in the following activities:

      1. curriculum development, including development of new courses, course modifications, improvements to existing courses and development of course syllabi
