Why does my built-in oven not heat up to the temperature that it was set at?

This oven is a Kenmore wall oven model 911.4012990. When the bake button is pressed and the temperature is set to say, 350 degrees, (this is starting with a cold oven!). The display will then drop to 300 degrees in a few seconds, instead of 100 like it normally does with a cold oven! The temperature will then increase in 5 degree increments (as it used to) but, these occur much faster until the display reaches 350.
The actual oven temperature is not anywhere close to 350! (significantly lower). Is this a faulty thermostat, or sensor?
