This study is phase two of a two-phase research effort designed to describe the role of the academic department chairperson in the public universities of Jordan and to develop a systematic, formal process for evaluating the performance of this position. The purpose of this phase (phase II) was to develop an evaluation model for the academic chairperson's performance that can be used in the public universities of Jordan. In phase I, the actual and the ideal role expectations were identified through interviews with deans, chairpersons, and faculty members in Jordan public universities during Summer, 1992. These expectations were profiled and used as the basis for phase II research.
