Use of Diagnostic or Additional Questions
The use of the Diagnostic Form and Additional Questions is OPTIONAL. Please remember that Questions 1-20 on the Diagnostic Form and any additional questions added by the instructor are not used in computing the scores for progress on relevant objectives and the Summary Evaluation scores. Departments will be responsible for collecting information from faculty with regard to choice of either the Short Form or Diagnostic Form and/or the use of additional questions.
Additional questions must be provided to the Department at the same time as the FIF on a single sheet of white letter-size paper. Questions need to numbered consecutively (starting with 19 for the Short Form and 48 for the Diagnostic Form) and response items must be provided as per the IDEA instructions. Additional questions are not used in computing the scores for progress on relevant objectives and the Summary Evaluation scores. The list of additional questions will only be placed in the faculty Personnel Action File at the request of the faculty being evaluated.
