Abstract:

Designed to solve YOUR problems, conflicts, and confusion about how to evaluate teaching. Written expressly for YOU with Berk's signature sense of humor. The "flashpoints" covered are the topics that pop up the most frequently and heatedly on listservs and in publications. Each flashpoint is defined succinctly, options are presented, and then evidence-based recommendations for concrete action steps are proffered in an effort to stop the popping. The recommendations are grounded in psychometric, professional, and legal standards. The last-named, in particular, can protect you from costly litigation. If you hire, promote, demote, and fire full- and part-time faculty based on student ratings and other measures, then you are vulnerable to violations of federal antidiscrimination laws. Several flashpoints address procedures you can take to stay out of court. If you are a faculty member, you need to know whether your institution's measures of teaching arc appropriate and defensible, and what you should do if they are not. Three sample "flashpoints" and solutions: Low response rate in online administrations. Solution: 20 strategies to increase rates, Scales to evaluate online and blended/hybrid courses. Solution: 7 strategies are suggested and evaluated, Use of ratings for contract renewal, pay raise, teaching awards, and promotion and tenure. Solution: Applying 80/20 rule for adverse impact to avoid lawsuits related to unequal pay and gender, race, ethics, and age discrimination.
