Evaluating Submitted Material

Updated

Introduction

As a member of a review committee in the PTR Process, your primary objective in this role is to assess how well the documentation submitted in the PTR Portfolio demonstrates the Faculty's performance in maintaining excellence in his or her job duties since receiving tenure or since the last evaluation was conducted.

To begin the evaluation process you will need to find the cases that are assigned to you as a reviewer.  For a more in-depth description on how to that reference the earlier article on "Finding Your Assigned Cases".  Otherwise there is a brief refresher down below.  

Once the assigned cases have been located, you will need to open each case to see what each individual submitted as evidence for his or her professional performance.  

After reading and assessing the submitted material the review committee needs to write its PTR statement about the faculty member's performance.  Indicating, where needed, any areas that require improvement or opportunities for professional growth.   

*All PTR Statements need to be written on the appropriate FAR template.

All PTR statements, also, need to be completed and uploaded to "required items" box in each Interfolio case, by a specific date each annual cycle.  Failure to accomplish all responsibilities for the review step by the published deadline will result in an email notification from the FAR office.
