President Robert C. Detweiler
Suspension of the Collection and Distribution of PTE Norming Data
(Rescinds portions of PM 84-11)
I have reviewed the policy, EPC 88-21, proposed by the Academic Senate concerning the Perceived Teaching Effectiveness (PTE) norming data and have consulted about this matter with the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Council of Instructional Deans.
Because of the differing views expressed about the meaning of norming data, I am requesting more study of this issue, as well as a review of the PTE form itself. In the meantime, I am suspending the collection and distribution of PTE norming data for the 1989-1990 academic year.
