Evaluation

Non-unit adjunct faculty

top

Non-unit adjunct math faculty are evaluated every semester, in preparation for qualifying for Unit Adjunct Faculty 1 status (see how you qualify).

You will be contacted by either a full-time or Unit Adjunct Faculty 2 member, and an acceptable date for a class visit will be discussed. 

You will need to fill out some pre-classroom visitation paper work.  You should get the form via email from your evaluator after a date has been set up for a pre-conference.  At the pre-conference we will discuss your plan, objectives and methods.  After the classroom visit there is a post conference when you and the evaluator go over the results on the form together.

You can see a copy of the classroom observation form on eNet.

Student Evaluation of Instruction

top

Student evaluations are a component of the decision-making process as to whether non-unit adjunct faculty are rehired for future semesters.

Each semester, every student in all of your courses must complete the Student Evaluation of Instruction form. Near the end of the semester, the Institutional Research office will deliver enough forms for all of your sections to your mail folder. Instructions for distributing the forms will be included. You should not be in the room while the evaluations are being completed.
