Operational Clarifications of Article 8: Evaluation
1. When an evaluee teaches both online and in-person classes, the evaluators do not need to complete observations for classes from both modalities to comply with Article 8.
2. In the event an evaluator who has training in online education or experience in the subject matter to conduct the observation of an online class is not available:
a. If the evaluee teaches an in-person class, that is the class that will be observed.
b. If the evaluee does not teach an in-person class, a tenured evaluator will who has training in online education will be selected in consultation with the Academic Senate.
3. Student and colleague surveys will be conducted and scored by the District in a uniform and consistent manner. The average scores will exclude “not-applicable” and “I don’t know” answers from the denominator.
This MOU is effective immediately upon signature by the representative of each party.
