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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Effectively communicates methods for evaluating all aspects of faculty work and addresses a need felt by both faculty and administrators.... The guidelines provided by Glassick, Huber, and Maeroff will be very useful to those who want to be involved in this important change in the academy." (Faculty Development)

"This is the kind of book that will energize educators, especially those who take their teaching seriously. In fact, it is indispensable reading for anyone interested in the twin current discussions on the role of the professiorate and the changing definition of the mission of American higher education.... Recommended reading for true teachers and all those on the cutting edge of the education profession." (Forum, a publication of the Association of Christians in Higher Education)
