Assessment of research performance 1

Assessment of Research Performance (1)

Avital, Collopy (2001) mention 2 main approaches: evaluative and explanatory

  • The Evaluative approach

    • Performance (outputs) evaluation

    • Comparison and ranking of researches, programs, institutions, etc.

    • Reputation issue (e.g.colleagues´assesment)

    • Yield issue (e.g.publications, conferences, etc.)

    • Influence issue (e.g.journal rankings, an impact factor)

Assessment of research performance 2

Assessment of Research Performance (2)

  • The Explanatory approach

    • Identification of determinants (the antecedents) of research performance

    • Individual factors

      • Demographic

      • Experience

      • Personality

    • Organizational factors

      • Mission, performance evaluation (reward system), research grants received, time spent on research and teaching, etc.

Assessing research activities in czech university context 1

Assessing Research Activities in Czech University Context (1)

  • The assessment has become an important criterion for commencing academic degrees or applying for managerial university positions

  • Mostly evaluative approach is applied

    • Bibliometric methods

Assessing Research Activities in Czech University Context (2)

  • An equal opportunity issue

    • All disciplines have no relevant local journals with an impact factor

    • Publications in foreign journals

      • Limited access

        • University have limited subscriptions to the journals

    • Participations in foreign conferences

      • Limited access

        • High costs

Assessing research activities in czech university context 3

Assessing Research Activities in Czech University Context (3)

  • Department orientation

    • Stable significant differences in the same faculty

    • Stable significant differences in teaching duties

  • Gender issue

Assessing research activities in czech university context 4

Assessing Research Activities in Czech University Context (4)

  • The explanatory approach has been often neglected although reports on institutional environment, research context or individual characteristics of university staff

  • Interconnections with university mission, HRM policy, and managerial competencies of university or faculty management

Conclusions

Conclusions

  • There is no one best approach

  • Providing equal opportunities and application of reasonable multidimensionalcriteria is a responsibility of universities, if they apply criteria for assessing research performance
