Winter 2019 Assessment of Senior Administrators

Dear members of the APUO,

In accordance with its Policy Statement on Assessment of Senior Administrators, in February 2019 the APUO asked members in the faculties of Education, Engineering, Law: Civil Law section and the Telfer School of Management to complete a survey to assess their Dean.

You can view a summary of the results of the four evaluations from the winter 2019 session. You may also view the details of the results for each Dean: 

As with the evaluation of the Dean of the Faculty of Arts performed during the last term, the deans of the Faculty of Law: Civil Law Section and the Telfer School of Management were evaluated for a second time. We are thus able to compare the results of their two assessments. 

Dean of the Faculty of Law: Civil Law Section

As you can see from the table below, Dean Lévesque’s results have remained relatively stable.

In interpreting the arithmetic mean values, it should be noted that the items on the questionnaire have a range of 1 to 5: 1 represents extremely poor performance; 5 represents outstanding performance; any mean value below 3 indicates unsatisfactory performance; mean values from 3 to 4 indicate satisfactory performance; and mean values above 4 indicate more than satisfactory performance.
