Processing the applications of the applicants for best teacher and best advisor awards

  • Once received from the Dean’s office, the ADUGS office forwards the applications and supporting data and documents to the members of the Ad Hoc committees for the best teacher and best advisor awards.
  • The ADUGS office calls for a meeting for each Ad Hoc committee and requests each member to evaluate the candidates based on the supporting data and documents, and fill scores for evaluation criteria in the specified assessment tables. Then, the member sends the tables to the ADUGS office.
  • The ADUGS office compiles the scores from all members and calculate the average scores for each candidate.
  • In the meeting, the average score for each candidate is discussed and related to the supporting data and documents. Accordingly, the Ad Hoc committees list and decide the three candidates with the highest scores for the best teacher and best advisor awards. Then, the candidates are ranked and listed descendingly.
