AAU is aware that there is a large body of literature on how people learn as well as a number of valid ways for faculty members to engage in formative assessment of their teaching. AAU has created a matrix that is intended to capture strategies campuses are using to incorporate evidence beyond student course evaluation in the summative evaluation of faculty members’ teaching (e.g., promotion and tenure, and annual/merit reviews).
AAU is continuously developing the matrix and considers it a living document. If you are aware of an effort not included in this list and would like to add it, please visit http://bit.ly/AAUmatrix. As a critical lever for change, AAU is intentionally working to highlight these strategies. They are also engaged with national projects focused on this topic.
The matrix can be found online by following this link.
