Adjunct Performance Evaluation
Beginning with the 2019/2020 Academic year, FSCJ will use myIMPACT (Individually Measuring Performance and Achievement to Cultivate Talent) for Adjunct Evaluation.
As always, FSCJ Online will contact our Adjunct Faculty to let them know that one of our staff will be taking a look at their online classrooms during the term. After that observation is complete, we'll set up a time to chat about the online teaching experience. Please check out the myIMPACT Training Video to view details on the evaluation submission process.
Our observation will focus on the following competencies and examples related to online teaching.
