Universities are knowledge-based organizations and high-quality performance management of professionals in these organizations has particular importance. The paper analyses performance appraisal systems in universities with particular emphasis on teaching faculty and Head of the Departments’ (HoDs) perspectives and their expectations. According to the information provided by the teachers and HoDs, Faculty members were generally given informal verbal feedback on their performance. Moreover, universities have written job duties and responsibilities and teachers were being measured according to that document. According to the responses in old and new universities, it emerged that students’ results of teachers, academic activities, professional commitment, and punctuality were relatively more reported aspects in new universities, while knowledge, research and personal behavior related aspects were given more emphasis in ACR by the old universities’ HoDs.

Abstract


Universities are knowledge-based organizations and high-quality performance management of professionals in these organizations has particular importance. The paper analyses performance appraisal systems in universities with particular emphasis on teaching faculty and Head of the Departments’ (HoDs) perspectives and their expectations. According to the information provided by the teachers and HoDs, Faculty members were generally given informal verbal feedback on their performance. Moreover, universities have written job duties and responsibilities and teachers were being measured according to that document. According to the responses in old and new universities, it emerged that students’ results of teachers, academic activities, professional commitment, and punctuality were relatively more reported aspects in new universities, while knowledge, research and personal behavior related aspects were given more emphasis in ACR by the old universities’ HoDs.
