Abstract : The procedure and data of the Second Annual Award for Excellence in Teaching are discussed and studied. Basic statistics of balloting are presented and increased participation is noted. The techniques of data reduction are described. Some special studies are made concerning score data with distribution of mixed exponential type, the effect on the score of whether or not an instructor teaches during the quarter of the balloting, and concordance determination with last year's ranking of instructors. Recommendations for modifying future procedural items are made. (Author)
