University Teachers’ Performance Comprehensive Evaluation Based on Principal Component Analysis

Shuangxi ZHOU, Junwen FENG


The performance of college teachers may affect the development of the university and individual progress at the aspect of teaching and research, so the effective evaluation should consider all the above factors and achieve a satisfied result. In the paper, an evaluation system is, firstly, designed according to three aspects including teaching, research and the development of the subject or major to improve the scientific nature and feasibility of the evaluation of the performance of college teachers. Secondly, the multiple indexes may affect the final evaluation results, then it is necessary to select some of the indexes to make evaluation easily. The principal component analysis is adopted for data dimensionality reduction. Thirdly, the paper proposes seven methods to make a comprehensive evaluation, and the he final sorting result is also given by comparing different methods’ outputs and integrating them. Finally, an example illustrates the feasibility and availability of the proposed methods.
