Lecturer Reviews

Temporary faculty (lecturers, temporary librarians, temporary counselors) should review UPS 210.070PDF FileOpens in new window, prior to preparing a Working Personnel Action File (WPAF) for evaluation.The requirements of the WPAF (also referred to as the Portfolio or review file) are described in UPS 210.070PDF FileOpens in new window.

All temporary faculty should normally expect to prepare a WPAF for evaluation, the exception being faculty in the first or second year of a 3-year contract (unless requested).  The UPS document defines three types of evaluations.  The period of review is determined by the type of evaluation and the lecturer's employment status.

Periodic Evaluation

  • Full-Time and Part-Time Faculty within the first five years of lecturer employment at CSUF
  • Full-Time and Part-Time Faculty in the 3rd year of a 3-year contract

In a periodic evaluation, the period under review is the time since the WPAF was submitted for the prior review, which is usually one year or three years.

Comprehensive (6th Year) Evaluation

  • Full-Time and Part-Time Faculty in the 6th year of lecturer employment at CSUF

In a comprehensive evaluation, the period under review is the time to the initial lecturer appointment.

Range Elevation Evaluation

  • Only for Full-Time and Part-Time Faculty eligible to apply for the range elevation process.

In a range elevation, the period under review is the entire time within the current range, but with emphasis on past 5 years.  Please note that the Range Elevation process is not simply a matter of asking for a salary increase based on good performance.  It is specific process set forth in the faculty collective bargaining agreement.  Eligibility to apply for this type of increase is limited to lecturers who have reached a certain type of "plateau" in their salary and are no longer able to receive Service Salary Increases in their current position.  Please refer to UPS 210.070 and to the FAR range elevation page for more information.
