The purpose of this thesis was to present the procedure and techniques used to select the fourth annual recipient of the Rear Admiral John J. Shieffelin Award for Excellence in Teaching. The data and results were analyzed and compared with the results from the previous year. Findings indicate that the best teacher in each of the eleven academic departments is being selected but that distribution of the eleven within the top twenty positions occurs randomly. Recommendations were made for changes in the present system should it continue in use and an additional recommendation was made for the adoption of a new method of selection based on the use of student questionnaires.
