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
. 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
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.
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
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
