The process is governed byUPS 210.020.The purpose of this periodic evaluation is to be a "consultation of colleagues, whose aim should be the encouragement and maintenance of excellence; an acknowledgment of positive contributions made by tenured faculty; and a time to reflect on opportunities for growth and professional development."
If the rebuttal period was set up correctly, Interfolio will send you a notification to your fullerton.edu inbox from California State University Fullerton from <[email protected]>when the faculty member under review uploads his or her completed rebuttal form. Once you receive that notification log into Interfolio, open the case and read what the faculty member's response was to the documentation that you shared.
It is the Dean's responsibility to ensure that each faculty member under review in your department receives a copy of the appropriate documentation by the published deadline in theFAR Annual RTP Timetables.
The Rebuttal Period lasts for 10 CALENDAR DAYS after a copy of the appropriate documentation is provided to the faculty member under review
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. Different types of RTP evaluations will have different amounts of submitted documentation, for a summary of these volumes please refer to the table provided in the "Review Step Introduction".
After reading the submitted material and comparing it to the appropriate criteria in UPS 210.002 or the approved Departmental Standards, the review committee needs to write its separate Evaluation and Recommendation statements for the faculty member.
All evaluations and recommendations, also, need to be completed, uploaded to "required items" box in each Interfolio case, and shared with the faculty member under review (also known as the "candidate") 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.
