  • The purpose of this study is to analyze the current evaluation methods on faculty performance at Korean engineering colleges and develop teaching evaluation indicators for faculty performance. We investigated the faculty performance cases in engineering colleges inside and outside of the Korea, the engineering faculty's awareness of evaluation factors for their educational performance, and the appropriate ratios by indicating factors. Also we developed evaluation indicators for educational achievements to improve the current faculty performance system. 227 engineering faculty members answered our survey questionnaire. The result in the case study on faculty performance evaluation is as follows. First, most items of faculty performance evaluation are about quantitative indicators that can easily conduct objective evaluation. Second, evaluation items of faculty performance are mostly focused on instruction in a classroom. Third, the evaluation by students and administrative managers is more dominant than that by professors or their colleagues, document evaluation than on site evaluation, general evaluation than formative evaluation, and static evaluation than dynamic evaluation. Lastly, Some universities tend to substitute outstanding articles for underperforming instruction. The evaluation indicators that we have developed can be implemented by four types of subjects, such as students, professors, their colleagues, and deans. Also, based on the evaluation indicators, faculties can freely select their evaluation domains depending on the their tracks, such as a teaching track, a research track, or an industry-university cooperation track. The mandatory evaluation fields include teaching, student counselling, teaching portfolio evaluation by mentors or colleagues, class management evaluation by deans, and self-evaluation. The other areas are optional and professors can choose their evaluation factors.

  • On March 2011, an annual salary plan was applied to new faculty members in National Colleges and Universities. In 2015, all tenured faculty members will receive salaries based on annual performance evaluations. The efforts and accomplishments of faculty are normally assessed according to a standard formula of 40% teaching, 40% research and 20% service. In almost all colleges and universities, student course evaluations may be considered as the only measure of the perceived quality of the courses offered by the faculty member. The mandatory course evaluations are becoming prevalent in Korea. The results of course evaluations do not reflect the fairness and the appropriateness of the quality of the course taught by the faculty member and should not be considered under the teaching evaluation criteria.

  • The purpose of this study is to develop key elements of evaluating research achievements in humanities and social sciences at universities in Korea. Literature reviews and analysis of policies for faculty evaluation in domestic universities were carried to define concepts and types of research achievements. Questionnaire surveys and case studies were performed to find measures, criteria and requirements of research achievements assessment in 26 domestic universities and several foreign universities. As a result, basic principles and key elements of evaluation in research achievements that reflected quantity and quality of research were proposed. The result of this study will stimulate research activities and promote the national research competitiveness with ensuring internal stabilities in universities.
