Faculty Evaluation Handbook
As learning is flexible and evolving, so to is the faculty. Faculty are themselves life-long learners, even as they
strive to provide the highest quality learning experience for their students. Faculty do not compete; rather
they collaborate to produce knowledge and a learning environment. In the same way, faculty collaborate in
assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of instructional practice, and in contributing expertise and
experience to the governance of the whole institution. Through collaboration and mutual respect, faculty
model citizenship in its broadest sense to students, through the curriculum and through relationships to peers
and the whole institution.

INTRODUCTION TO THE EVALUATION PROCESS
The effectiveness and quality of an institution’s total educational program depend upon the presence of a
competent faculty. Therefore, the College has an obligation, in consultation with faculty, to evaluate
substantively the performance of its faculty members and to provide support for their development on a
continuing basis. This obligation emerges from collective bargaining agreements,
1
accreditation requirements,
and our personal commitment to continual professional development.
To fulfill this obligation, faculty and administrators have developed this document as a guide to the evaluation
process at Lane Community College
2
. Its intent is to help faculty and administrators successfully and
meaningfully participate in a substantive evaluation process that is primarily focused on professional
development and only secondarily on corrective evaluation and action. To that end, this document provides
information about the evaluation processes, forms and instructions.
Evaluations that support well developed professional growth will help assure the continuing competency of
faculty. Such procedures, with sufficient resources, can help faculty remain current in their field, ensure job
competency, identify deficiencies in performance, and provide options such as counseling, training programs,
opportunities to observe peers, and, when appropriate, a remediation plan.
Evaluation Types and Source of Initiation
There are two types of substantive evaluations of faculty. The primary type is the Developmental Evaluation,
which is initiated by time of service. A Corrective Evaluation is only initiated in response to indications of
inadequate performance requiring significant intervention.
Purposes of Evaluations
3
1. To ensure quality in the teaching and learning environment and enhance student learning.
2. To support each individual's growth and development.
3. To support periodic assessment, reflection, and mindful development by faculty of their professional
service.
4. To support the continuous improvement of inservice programs and faculty professional development
programs.
5. To support faculty creativity, experimentation, and risk-taking.
6. To support alignment of performance with new needs of the discipline and department, and promote
departmental/divisional clarity of purpose.
7. To identify and overcome poor performance and to provide a basis for decisions regarding retention.

Principles of Evaluations1
1. The College is accountable for the evaluation of performance of faculty members and to provide
reasonable resources for the professional development of faculty on a continuing basis, which shall be
accomplished through the collaborative efforts of faculty and administration.
2. Every faculty member shall participate as the subject of a Developmental Evaluation at least every third
year.
3. Multiple indices shall be utilized, both in terms of sources of information and activities evaluated, and
may include teaching, scholarly performance and/or research, and service to the profession, college, and
community.
4. The administration shall have access to all primary or raw data developed according to the evaluation
plan.
5. Faculty participation in evaluation is critical to bringing subject matter and pedagogical knowledge
substantively into the assessment process. At the discretion of the employee being evaluated, a team
may be used to help in the Developmental Evaluation process. The extent of use of peer evaluation shall
be by mutual agreement of the faculty members involved.
6. Where deficiencies in a faculty member's performance are identified, the faculty member is responsible
for correcting the deficiencies, and the College will provide reasonable development opportunities and
resources.
7. Corrective Evaluations shall not be initiated as a form of discipline, and any disciplinary action flowing
from them will be conducted within just cause principles and will result from failure to meet
improvement plans and objectives.
Evaluation limitations and requirements Developmental Evaluations are required every three years,
except for probationary faculty who will be required to complete a Developmental Evaluation during each year
of probation
1
.
1. After their first year, probationary employees may not be recommended for non-retention based on
performance without receiving at least one Corrective Evaluation. Further, probationary employees may
not be non-renewed during a Corrective Evaluation and the period of any subsequent improvement
plan
2
.
2. The division manager will notify the Association of scheduled Corrective Evaluations
3
.
3. An Association representative may attend all evaluation meetings, if requested by the faculty member.

Use of Regular Student Evaluations
1
The regular student evaluations of classes may be used in evaluations of faculty provided that:
1. The evaluation instrument was properly used.
2. The faculty member received the complete results of the evaluation within a month of the end of the course
in which the evaluation was solicited, or as soon as possible thereafter.
3. Any concerns raised by the evaluation results were given in writing to the faculty member within a month of
the end of the course for which it was given, or as soon as possible thereafter.
4. Alternative explanations of negative results were sought and were seriously considered.
5. Anomalous results were discounted.
Use of Peer Evaluation and Teaching/Professional Development Portfolios
2
Peer evaluation of employees and teaching/professional development portfolios can be important inputs to
developmental planning. A faculty member has the discretion over their scope and use, but data provided
within this scope shall be accessible upon request to the College. Peers have the discretion over being part of
peer evaluations, and may decline to participate without prejudice. The use of any data and conclusions derived
from a peer evaluation initiated by the employee separately from the evaluation process is at the discretion of
the employee.

DEVELOPMENTAL EVALUATIONS
Developmental Evaluations shall be used to provide a structured and supported opportunity for faculty to
periodically take stock of accomplishments, reflect on current and future directions, and connect those
directions with the challenges facing the discipline and department/division. The experience within this type of
evaluation is intended to be purely developmental and result in a development plan
1
. Faculty may wish to
develop a portfolio as part of the evaluation process (see Appendix A).
Probationary faculty are required to complete this type of evaluation each year of the three-year probationary
period. For probationary employees, the evaluation schedule will be established as soon as possible and
completed in time to communicate, if necessary, a decision of non-renewal by March 15.
Permanent faculty, and part-time faculty that have earned part-time seniority
2
or with five years of service to
the College, will complete this type of evaluation every three years. It can take place at any time during the
academic year provided it is completed within two consecutive terms. The evaluation schedule will be
worked out with the individual being evaluated.
Procedures
3
The Developmental Evaluation will be conducted consistent with the following:
1. The Developmental Evaluation shall be carried out by an evaluation team composed of the employee being
evaluated, the division/department chair, and if desired by the faculty member, other staff chosen by the
faculty member, subject to reasonable ability of the group to do its work. The manager is not required by the
contract, but may be required by the Office of Instruction, to be present at Developmental Evaluation
meetings.
2. The evaluation team shall meet in a planning conference to discuss the scope of the Developmental
Evaluation, the kinds and sources of data that will be necessary to conduct the evaluation, and the manner
by which the data are to be collected and analyzed. The division manager shall ensure that this work is
accomplished and the results of this conference are reduced to writing and a copy provided the employee.
At the request of the employee, a copy will be provided to the Association.
3. An evaluation conference of the evaluation team, shall be held to clarify any questions concerning the data,
to clarify developmental issues, to make developmental recommendations, to identify sources of support,
and to identify and discuss any constraints faced by the employee and to suggest ways to remove such
constraints. The division manager shall ensure the evaluation conference takes place and the results of the
evaluation conference are a development plan and a summary, which shall be reduced to writing.
4. The employee shall be provided a written copy of the results of the evaluation conference and shall be
afforded the reasonable opportunity to provide an addendum in writing, which will be attached. The
summary of the evaluation conference, including addenda to the summary, shall be placed in the employee's
personnel file.

CORRECTIVE EVALUATIONS
Corrective Evaluations shall be the response to indications of performance deficiencies requiring significant
intervention. Their outcome shall be a clarification of the validity of deficient performance indications, a
clarification of performance expectations, and/or an Improvement Plan if indicated by the evaluation.
Principles
1
Corrective evaluations may be implemented at any time during an academic year. All such evaluations shall
be developed within the following principles:
1. Due Process: The investigation of performance and/or behavioral problems will be conducted using full
due process.
2. Thorough: Any resulting improvement plan will clearly state expectations, timelines, and consequences
of failure and success.
3. Inclusive: The Corrective Evaluation and correction process will have, as its primary objective, the
continued employment of the individual. Therefore, the College will provide reasonable resources in
support of the Corrective Evaluation Improvement Plan.
4. Respectful: All matters dealing with corrective evaluations will be conducted in such a way as to
preserve the dignity of the individual involved, subject to the requirements of the faculty contract.
5. Timely: Corrective Evaluations will be conducted as soon as possible following the receipt of sufficient
information regarding performance and/or behavioral problems. Decisions of non-renewal for
probationary employees, based on failure to satisfy the objectives of the Improvement Plan, must be
made prior to March 1.
6. Consistent: Investigations, Corrective Evaluations and Improvement Plans will be conducted within
these guidelines.
7. Union Participation: The LCCEA will be expected to participate actively in all phases of the Corrective
Evaluation process with the concurrence of the employee being evaluated. The Association shall be
timely informed of the occurrence and results of every step
8. Discipline and Non-Renewal: Recommendations regarding discipline or non-renewal coming from this
evaluation shall be appropriately based on the level of conformance to the performance expectations
specified in the Improvement Plan.
Procedures
2
Any corrective evaluation must include the following steps:
Step 1 - Initiation: The appropriate vice-president or manager will initiate the Corrective Evaluation process
when he/she is made aware of allegations of deficient performance that requires significant intervention. The
manager will prepare a statement of the allegations and a statement of the scope of further inquiry, which will
closely correspond to the specific allegations of poor performance. The employee will be informed of the
initiation of this process and of his/her right to representation, and will be given a copy of the statement.
Step 2 - Planning the Investigation: Following a reasonable preparation time for the employee, the manager
and the employee will meet to discuss the details of the allegation of poor performance, the
1
Article 37.1
2
Article 37.2
13
scope of further inquiry, including kinds and sources of data required for the inquiry, and the manner in which
the data will be collected and analyzed. The results of this meeting will be reduced to writing, with copies
provided to the faculty member.
Step 3 - Working With the Data: Following receipt of the data, the manager and employee will meet to clarify
any questions concerning the data and engage in an evaluation/developmental discussion. The intent of this
discussion will be to identify strengths and weaknesses in the employee’s performance that fall within the scope
of the inquiry, to suggest ways to enhance the employee’s performance, and discuss any constraints faced by the
employee and ways to remove such constraints.
Step 4 - Conclusions: The results of this evaluation conference shall be reduced to writing and shall include
statements of confirmed poor performance with attendant performance expectations and statements of
exoneration for allegations that were not confirmed by the findings. Upon request of either the employee or the
manager, a mutually acceptable third person may be selected to help interpret the data.
Step 5 - Employee Response: The employee shall be provided a written copy of the results of the evaluation
conference, and shall be afforded the opportunity to respond in writing. If the employee submits a timely
request, he/she will be granted a second evaluation conference. The employee will be provided a reasonable
time to respond. The response will be attached to the evaluation prior to the time that it is placed in the
personnel file. In either event, the employee agrees to sign the evaluation.
Step 6 - Improvement Plan: If following the Corrective Evaluation, the College determines that the
performance of an employee is substandard, an Improvement Plan will be developed to provide an
opportunity and support for the employee to improve his/her performance. The Improvement Plan will
include:
Measurable outcomes of improvement
Reasonable timelines for success
List of types of assistance that will be provided by the College
Support and direction by the immediate supervisor
Schedule of frequent conferences with written progress reports
The improvement plan shall not be placed in the faculty member’s personnel file.
Step 7 - Results of the Plan: Following complete implementation of the Improvement Plan, the
employee's supervisor shall prepare a summary of performance and a recommendation regarding
retention, which shall be placed in the employee's personnel file.
Note: Due to the potential for discipline arising from the Corrective Evaluation process, the LCCEA will be
timely informed of the meetings and results of the various steps. The employee retains the discretion as to
whether representation is present in the meetings. If a LCCEA representative plans to attend a meeting,
he/she shall make a good faith effort to so notify the division manager at least two working days prior to the
meeting.

APPENDIX A: PILOT PORTFOLIO GUIDELINES
A teaching portfolio may be used for professional development purposes. It should demonstrate the
teacher’s abilities and professionalism, as well as encourage collaboration and experimentation.
The development of the portfolio should be supported rather than managed by the department/division chair.
Since the purpose of the teaching portfolio is formative and produced by the teacher, its composition will
necessarily be individualized. The portfolio should characterize and represent a faculty member's unique,
distinguishing work as a teacher. Although a teaching portfolio integrates many different kinds of information,
it is not expected to be a complete reflection of the faculty member's work.
Portfolio Items
The teaching portfolio should be a selective gathering of materials chosen by the faculty member that
reflects and critically evaluates three areas: Work as a Teacher (or the appropriate role(s) for non-teaching
faculty), Scholarship, and Service to the College.
Work as a Teacher - some examples include:
Description of academic responsibilities.
Representative course syllabi.
Information from students, peers, and chair.
Description of students, their learning styles and reasons for taking the course.
Conferences with students, including tutoring, academic advising, and mentoring.
Coordination and supervision of student activities directly related to the academic program.
Coordination and supervision of academic programs.
Writing letters of recommendations.
Evaluation of library holdings and recommendation of resources to be ordered by the library.
Review, selection, and procurement of equipment, software, supplies, books, films/videos, and other
materials for classroom use.
Other similar activities.
Scholarship - some examples include:
Curriculum preparation, design and development.
Statement of teaching/academic philosophies and methodologies.
Steps taken to evaluate and improve one’s teaching or academic work.
Personal criteria of efforts for assessing teaching/academic performance.
Description of professional development efforts.
Experiments in teaching methods and academic-oriented research.
Development of new courses and academic programs or services.
Documentation of on going reading, research, and course work, to maintain proficiency in one’s field.
21
In the case of fine arts, performing arts, and physical education, regular practice and performance to
maintain and develop professional skills.
In the case of professional technical education, attending workshops and training sessions, visiting work
sites, etc., to maintain and develop professional skills.
Research intended to lead to publication in scholarly journals and books or presentation to professional
society or group in one’s fields.
Editing professional journals and serving as referee of manuscripts that have been submitted to a journal.
Reviewing texts in one’s field to be used in courses and/or for a publisher.
Holding membership or an office in a professional association.
Attendance and participation in meetings, conferences, workshops, and conventions in one’s field,
including professional associations.
Writing proposals for and/or working on SLI projects and other similar projects.
Writing and/or implementing grant proposals.
Consulting with faculty on professional development proposals and projects.
Discipline-connected consultation or discipline-connected community service.
Other similar activities.
Service to the College - some examples include:
Service on department/division and college-wide committees.
Service on Association executive board and/or committees.
Service on joint governance committees.
Participation in college-sponsored activities to recruit students and new faculty.
Screening and interviewing candidates for faculty and staff appointments.
Coordination, advisement, and supervision of student organizations or student activities not directly related
to the academic program.
Advising and counseling of students during registration.
Participation in college-sponsored community service or community projects.
Taking inventory of equipment and supplies.
Service as the designated representative of the College.
Participation in community-sponsored activities with the college (such as the United Way).
