Abstract : A study and documentation of the first annual Award for Excellence in Teaching is made. A brief background for the Award is presented, including the formation of a committee designated to choose objectively a worthy recipient. The problems encountered by the committee in designing a successful ballot and the statistical methods used in selecting the recipient are of major concern and are treated in detail. Basic response statistics are published accompanied by a data summary. Special studies including score analysis, weight component determination, and teacher elimination by dominance techniques are presented. To better understand the various population strata, several correlation studies are made. (Author)
