请问黑体标出的一句如何翻译呢?(关键是翻译drives the bar up 这个短语有点困难。)此句上文是说tenure应该被取消。

不知楼主的TENURE是否指的终身职位哦,在些权当些译吧,我的意见:

但是有持其它不同观点的人认为,终身职位是可以促进BAR提升本身的质量的。RADKE说,终身职位促使他去做更多的事情,并且使他成为了一个更好的研究者。

tenure 指终身职位,tenure professor 终身教授,不用每几年签一次约.
bar 指标干,即标准.drives/pushes the bar up 指(驱使)提高标准
tenure clock 指的是从开始执教到得到终身职位这段时间,一般要奋斗五到六年。过了这段时间窗口还没得到终身职位那以后机会就很渺小了。

I agree,

drives the bar up for quality.
是个比喻的说法(a figure of speech)

for quality 修饰 the bar
所以也可以说 drives the bar for quality up
my try
终身职位使/把(教学)质量值提高了

好比Office图表里的那个Bar (条状图)

a bar就是其中一条

就好象
之所以用了这个比喻我想可能是经常这个值出现在图表中的纵坐标上

A more appropriate image of "the bar" is a high jump bar or pole vault (撑杆跳) bar, e.g.,
