One thought on “Online Senate Meeting: April 29

  1. On the course-evaluations issue:

    In our department, there is strong sentiment for an explicit statement that evals from Spring 2020 should not (or need not?) be included in tenure & promotion dossiers. But we also recognized that this immediately leads to the same issue as came up in S/U grading discussion: If individuals are allowed to opt-in (e.g., if their evals came back particularly strong because they did an amazing job under the circumstances), would this lead to negative assessment of colleagues who choose not to opt-in (“What are they hiding?” “They must not have done very well.”)? To some extent, chairs’ letters on tenure dossiers could address what faculty did during this semester. But it’s not clear if that’s entirely comforting to those with concerns. Will be glad to hear from others on these issues.
