Weren’t chairs directed by Provost Traynham and you to evaluate faculty more harshly. Specifically, weren’t chairs to to give more accurate annual ratings, because they were rating faculty too positively?

Response from the floor by Provost Chally

Regarding evaluating individuals more harshly, we encourage our evaluations to be accurate. They do not need to be high — they do not need to be low — they just need to be accurate.
