Overview

"My own personal hope for this Carnegie report is that it will contribute to the current constructive debate about the role of the professoriate, and that from such discourse common language will begin to emerge within the academy about the meaning of scholarship and how it might be authentically assessed. "Ernest L. Boyer Princeton, New Jersey November 7, 1995—from the prologue When it was published in 1990, Scholarship Reconsidered offered a new paradigm that recognized the full range of scholarly activity by college and university faculty and questioned the existence of a reward system that pushed faculty toward research and publication and away from teaching and integrating and applying existing knowledge. Now, Scholarship Assessed begins where Scholarship Reconsidered left off. Begun under the oversight of Ernest L. Boyer, and completed by authors Glassick, Huber, and Maenoff, Scholarship Assessed examines the changing nature of scholarship in today's colleges and universities. It proposes new standards for assessing scholarship and evaluating faculty with special emphasis on methods for documenting effective scholarship. Based on the findings of the Carnegie Foundation's National Survey on the Reexamination of Faculty Roles and Rewards, this is an excellent resource for anyone engaged in the debate of creating institutional standards of rigor and quality in our colleges and universities. The authors examine the changing nature of scholarship in today's colleges and universities. They propose new standards with special emphasis on methods for assessment and documentation.
