The Collegiality Assessment Matrix and the Self-Assessment Matrix
Colleges and universities have long seen the need to evaluate faculty collegiality in a fair, objective, and reproducible manner.

The Collegiality Assessment Matrix (CAM) has been designed to identify and measure those observable behaviors that research has shown to be most commonly associated with collegiality in an academic setting. In addition, by having the faculty members themselves complete a similar instrument – the Self-Assessment Matrix (S-AM) – it is also possible to compare how a faculty member views his or her own collegiality against how others (chairs, deans, peers, and others) perceive it.
Both of these instruments were subjected to two full years of validity and reliability checks via review by a panel of advisors and then field-testing. Almost unanimously, the chairs and faculty members who piloted these instruments indicated that they were

There’s a minimum order of 10 forms, but these can be in any combination of CAMs and S-AMs. The larger the order, the lower the cost per form:
Campus Climate and Faculty/Staff Engagement
ATLAS also offers two other inventories delivered in an online-only format. The Campus Climate and Morale Survey asks several demographic questions followed by 25 field-tested questions related to campus climate and morale. Suitable for faculty, staff, and students, this inventory provides institutions with anonymous data from which they can draw conclusions about how to improve local climate and morale. Only $1.00 per email address sent by ATLAS.
The Faculty and Staff Engagement Survey asks several demographic questions followed by 35 field-tested questions related to the respondent's level of engagement at the institution. Suitable for faculty and staff, this inventory provides institutions with anonymous data from which they can draw conclusions about how to improve employee engagement. Only $1.00 per email address sent by ATLAS.
