Frequently Asked Questions

Q - What methods are used by AU for job evaluations?

A - A combination of methods are considered for each job -- market pricing, point factor scoring, whole job ranking and classification factors.  The results of each of the methods suggest a grade and the grade assigned is based on a combination of these results.

Q - What are the criteria for assigning jobs to the four Auburn University employee groups -- "Tenure Track Faculty", "Nontenure Track Faculty", "University Staff" and "Administrative-Professional"?

A - The criteria approved by the Board of Trustees in 1992 are as follows:

  • University Staff: All FLSA nonexempt jobs.
  • Tenure Track Faculty: Jobs which carry a tenure relationship with a tenure awarding unit.
  • Nontenure Track Faculty: Jobs which do not carry a tenure relationship but either 1) carry administrative or supervisory responsibilities for an instructional, research or extension program, or 2) require self-directing, non-assisting participation in instruction, research, extension or a combination, and involves design, development, execution and evaluation of an academic undertaking based upon specialized training, or knowledge, and/or equivalent experience.
  • Adminstrative-Professional: All others not included in the above (FLSA exempt and not faculty).

Q - What are the procedures for reclassifying a position (i.e. changing the job assigned to the position)?
